30 of 42
How would you know if the question was a strong acid/base question?
The Ka isn't given
31 of 42
How would you go about calculating a strong acid question?
Balance eqauation, Work out initial moles, find out remaining moles, divide by total volume, then -log
32 of 42
Balance equation, work out initial moles, find remaining moles, divide by total volume, divide by Kw (1x1o-14) and then -log
33 of 42
How would you know the question is a weak acid question?
The Ka is given
34 of 42
What is the Ka expression for a weak acid?
Ka= [H+]2/[HA]
35 of 42
How would you calculate [H+] from Ka in a weak acid question?
[H+] = √Ka x [HA]
36 of 42
Find out original moles, find out which is in excess - if acid proceed, take away to find remaining, divide moles by salt (limiting factor), times by Ka and then -log
37 of 42
What do you do in a weak acid question if the base is in excess?
Answer it as if it was a strong base question
