# Problem: A solution is prepared by dissolving 0.23 moles of hydrazoic acid 0.27 moles of sodium azide in water sufficient to yield 1.00L of solution. The addition of 0.05 mol of sodium hydroxide to this buffer causes the pH to increase slightly. The pH does not increase drastically because the sodium hydroxide reacts with the ______ present in the buffer solution. The Ka of hydrazoic acid is 1.9x10 –5. Hydrazoic acid Azide H2O This is a buffer solution: the pH does not change upon the addition of an acid or base. All of the above
