Solution: The acid dissociation constant Ka for HSO4- is 1.26 x 10-2 and Kb for NH3 is 1.8 x 10-5.HSO4- (aq) + NH3 (aq)--> SO42- (aq) + NH4+(aq)Which direction will the reaction be favored and will the Kc for this reaction be, >1 or <1? Explain your reasoning.

Problem

The acid dissociation constant Ka for HSO4- is 1.26 x 10-2 and Kb for NH3 is 1.8 x 10-5.

HSO4- (aq) + NH3 (aq)--> SO42- (aq) + NH4+(aq)

Which direction will the reaction be favored and will the Kc for this reaction be, >1 or <1? Explain your reasoning.
