Formic acid (HCOOH) is a weak acid with Ka of 1.8x10-4 and a Kow of 0.88. HCOOH(aq) ⇌ H+(aq) + HCOO-(aq) Ka = 1.8x10-4 HCOOH(aq) ⇌ HCOOH (octanol) KOW = 0.88 Which of the scenarios would cause the concentration of formic acid in octanol to decrease? Buffer the water at pH = 8, Buffer the water at pH = 5, Buffer the water at pH = 2
