The pH at the equivalence point oF this titration is 8 . 37 pH . The p K a can be Found at one-halF the vol- ume oF the equivalence point; i.e. , at 46 mL. The p K a is 3 . 7 pH From looking at the graph. The Formula is p K a = - log ( K a ) = - log 1 . 8 × 10 - 4 · = 3 . 74473 pH . Note : The p K a is the pH when the mole Fraction is 0.5. 002 (part 1 oF 1) 10 points It required 25.0 mL oF 0.333 M NaOH solution to completely neutralize 15.0 mL oF H 2 SO 4 so- lution.

Wright, Jacqueline – Homework 7 – Due: Oct 29 2007, 11:00 pm – Inst: James Holcombe 2 V H 2 SO 4 = 15.0 mL The balanced equation for the reaction is H 2 SO 4 + 2 NaOH Na 2 SO 4 + 2 H 2 O We determine the moles of NaOH used. ? mol NaOH = 0 . 025 L soln × 0 . 333 mol NaOH 1 L soln = 0 . 00832 mol NaOH Using the mole ratio from the balanced chemical equation we calculate the moles of H 2 SO 4 needed to react with this amount of NaOH: ? mol H 2 SO 4 = 0 . 00832 mol NaOH × 1 mol H 2 SO 4 2 mol NaOH = 0 . 00416 mol H 2 SO 4 This is the amount of H 2 SO 4 that must have been in the 15.0 mL sample. Molarity is moles solute per liter of solution: ? M H 2 SO 4 = 0 . 00416 mol H 2 SO 4 0 . 0150 L solution = 0 . 277 M H 2 SO 4 003 (part 1 of 3) 10 points Below is the pH curve of a weak acid (HA) titrated with strong base. Answer the fol- lowing question based on the interpretation of this pH curve.
