Chapter 17: Additional Aspects of Aqueous Equilibria 1. Calculate the percent ionization of 0.10 M propionic acid (Ka = 1.3 x 10 -5 ). 2. Predict whether the pH of 1 L of a 0.10 M acetic acid solution increase, decrease, or remain constant when 0.050 mol sodium acetate is added. 3. Calculate the pH of the solution in #2 before and after the addition of sodium acetate (K a of HAc is 1.8x10 -5 ). 4. Consider the following buffer solutions. Solution #1: 0.30 M HC 2 H 3 O 2 / 0.30 M NaC 2 H 3 O 2 Solution #2: 0.20 M HC 2 H 3 O 2 / 0.30 M NaC 2 H 3 O 2 Solution #3: 0.30 M HC 2 H 3 O 2 / 0.20 M NaC 2 H 3 O 2 a. Which solution should have the highest pH? b. Which solution should have the greatest buffering capacity? c. Which solution should have the least buffering capacity when strong base is added? 5. Consider the following buffer solutions. NH 3 /NH 4 NO 3 K b (NH 3 ) = 1.76x10 -5 H 3 PO 4 /NaH 2 PO 4 K a (H 3 PO 4 ) = 1.0x10 -2 NaH 2 PO 4 /Na 2 HPO 4 K a (H 2 PO 4 - ) = 2.0x10 -7 HC 2 H 3 O 2 /NaC 2 H 3 O 2 K a (HC 2 H 3 O 2 ) = 1.75x10 -5
