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

How would you go about answering a strong base question?

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

How would you go about answering a weak acid question?

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

38 of 42
