Problem: Vitamin C is ascorbic acid, HC 6H7O6, which has a Ka of 8.0x10-5a. What is the equilibrium concentration of [H +] in a 0.10 M aqueous ascorbic acid solution?   b. What is the pOH of the aqueous solution, assuming the solution is at 25  oC.   c. The pKa of acetylsalicylic acid, HC9H7O4, is 3.52. Which acid is stronger: ascorbic or acetylsalicylic acid?
