2 Acid-Base Reactions When mixing acid with base, the reaction proceeds in the direction from the stronger to weaker member of a conjugate acid/base pair. What is favored for each of the following? 1. HCl + OH - Cl - + H 2 O 2. NH 4 + + OH - H 2 O + NH 3 3. HClO 2 + NH 3 ClO 2 - + NH 4 +

5 Very Dilute Solutions of Acid or Base Strong acid or Base (100% Ionized): Use initial concentration in K w expression to calculate [H 3 O + ] and [OH - ] from water autoionization. For Solutions of Weak Acid or Base: Use charge balance and mass balance equations to derive: When [H 3 O + ] 1 x 10 -6 M, this equation reduces to the usual one:
