2.13 (1) How will pH change when 0.020 mol of HCl is added to water to make 1 L of solution? HCl is a strong acid Review and Introduction to Buffers HCl + H 2 O H 3 O + + Cl - (completely dissociated) [H3O+] = [HCl] = (0.020 mol)/(1 L) = 0.020 mol/L = 0.020 M pH = - log (0.020) = 1.70 Initial pH = 7 (pure water at 25 deg C) pH = pHinit – pHfinal = 7.00 – 1.70 = 5.30 Change in pH CH 3 COOH (aq) + H 2 O (l) CH 3 COO (aq) + H 3 O + (aq) I 0.50 --- 0.50 0 C -x --- +x +x E 0.50-x --- 0.50+x x (2) How will pH change when 0.020 mol of HCl is added to 1 L of solution that is 0.590 M CH3COOH and 0.50 M CH3COONa?
