Prelab for Phun with Phosphate Buffers Chemistry 112 Lab Section 005 November 5, 2014 1. Describe how you would prepare 1.50 L of a 0.5 M phosphate buffer with a pH of 7.50. Be sure to show all your work; no credit will be given otherwise. pH = p K a + log [ base ] [ acid ] P t = molacid + molbase 7.50 = 7.21 + log [ base ] [ acid ] 0.5 M 1.50 L = mol acid + molbase 0.29 = log [ base ] [ acid ] 0.75 mol = molacide + mol base 10 0.29 = 10 log [ base ] [ acid ] mole/molarity ratio are equal, so I will substitute M for mol 1.9498446 = [ base ] [ acid ] 0.75 mol = molacid + 1.95 mol acid 1.9498446 [ acid ] =[ base ] 0.75 mol = 2.95 molacid 0.25425 mol = molacid 0.75 mol = 0.25 + molbase 0.49575 mol = molbase I would put 0.5 moles of my base and 0.3 (0.2 54) moles of my acid in a beaker and then fill it up

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
