🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Roberts' class at WESLEYAN.

Solution: The Ka of acetic acid is 1.8 x 10-5 at 25°C.a) What is the pH of a 0.5 M solution of acetic acid at 25°C?b)What is the pH of a solution made up of 20 mL of 0.5 M solution of acetic acid and 10 mL of 0.5 M sodium acetate?c) If 10 mL of 0.1 M NaOH is added to the solution in part b, what is the final pH?d) What is the pH of a solution containing equal concentrations of acetic acid and sodium acetate?

Problem

The Ka of acetic acid is 1.8 x 10-5 at 25°C.

a) What is the pH of a 0.5 M solution of acetic acid at 25°C?

b)What is the pH of a solution made up of 20 mL of 0.5 M solution of acetic acid and 10 mL of 0.5 M sodium acetate?

c) If 10 mL of 0.1 M NaOH is added to the solution in part b, what is the final pH?

d) What is the pH of a solution containing equal concentrations of acetic acid and sodium acetate?
