General Chemistry Lecture 102a Steps for solving Acid-Base titration questions Strong Acid/Strong Base: 1. Find moles of acid. 2. Find moles of base. 3. Write the equation. 4. Construct an ICE table. 5. Find the remaining moles of acid (or base). 6. Divide the remaining moles by the total volume. 7. Take the –log of the molarity. 8. If it is a base subtract from 14. When there are equal amounts of strong acid and strong base present, the pH is 7. Weak Acid/Strong Base: 1. Find moles of acid. 2. Find moles of base. 3. Write the equation. 4. Construct an ICE table. 5. Find the remaining moles of acid and base.

Unformatted text preview: 6. Divide the remaining moles of each by the total volume. 7. Set up the acid hydrolysis equation. 8. Construct an ICE table. 9. Take the –log of the molarity of [H 3 O + ]. When a weak acid is titrated with a strong base the equivalence point will have a pH that is greater than 7.0. Strong Acid/Weak Base: 1. Use the same steps for weak acid/strong base. 2. Next 14-[H 3 O + ]= pH When a weak base is titrated with a strong acid, the the equivalence point will have a pH that is less than 7.0....
