# Solution: When a 0.0538 M solution of an unknown weak acid, HA, is made, only 3.57% acid ionized. What is the Ka of the unknown acid?

###### Problem

When a 0.0538 M solution of an unknown weak acid, HA, is made, only 3.57% acid ionized. What is the Ka of the unknown acid?

###### Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the equilibrium constant of HA if a 0.0538 M solution is 3.57% ionized.

Recall that the percent ionization is given by:

Remember that weak acids partially dissociate in water and that acids donate H+ to the base (water in this case).

The dissociation of HNO2 is as follows:

HA(aq) + H2O(l)  H3O+(aq) + A(aq) View Complete Written Solution
