🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Billman's class at Abilene Christian University.

Solution: What mass of solid NaCH3CO2 (molar mass=82.0 g/mol) should be added to 1.0 L of 0.50 M CH3CO2H to make a buffer with a pH of 7.21? (pKa of CH 3CO2​H = 7.21)  

Problem

What mass of solid NaCH3CO2 (molar mass=82.0 g/mol) should be added to 1.0 L of 0.50 M CH3CO2H to make a buffer with a pH of 7.21? (pKa of CH 3CO2​H = 7.21)
