Problem of the Day #09 – Answer Key Deadline : 3:00 p.m., Friday, 6/20/08 LATE WORK WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED OR GRADED!!! This problem is worth a total of 20 raw points. In each part below, predict the products of the most likely Brønsted–Lowry acid–base reaction. Write the products in the appropriate boxes. If a product is a resonance hybrid, it is only necessary to draw one of the important contributing resonance structures. Please note that in Part (a) there is more than one type of proton in the acid on the left – assume that only the most acidic proton will react with the base. Similarly, in Part (b), assume that the most basic atom in the base on the left will abstract a proton from the acid. You may find it helpful to refer to Table 4.1 to help you judge relative acid or base strengths!!!

Unformatted text preview: In each part, indicate whether the equilibrium will favor the reactants or whether the equilibrium will favor the products by circling the appropriate choice. Once again, you may find it helpful to refer to Table 4.1 in your textbook to determine the position of the equilibrium.
