# Problem: On a lab exam, you have to find the concentrations of the monoprotic (one proton per molecule) acids HA and HB. You are given 43.5 mL of HA solution in one flask. A second flask contains 37.2 mL of HA, and you add enough HB solution to it to reach a final volume of 50.0 mL. You titrate the first HA solution with 87.3 mL of 0.0906 M NaOH and the mixture of HA and HB in the second flask with 96.4 mL of the NaOH solution. Calculate the molarity of the HA and HB solutions.

###### FREE Expert Solution
• We can establish a relationship between moles of OH- to the  moles of HA and HB
• Since both are monoprotic acids, we can say that 1 mole of OHwill neutralize 1 mole of HA or HB
