For all strong monoprotic acids, the molar concentration of the H+, [H+], is equal to the molar concentration of the parent acid; stoichiometry! pH = Log[H+] = Log(0.001) = (3) pH = 3
1 Question If 1.00 mL of 10 M HCl is diluted with water to a final volume of 100.0 mL, what is the pH of the final solution? HCl(aq) H+(aq) + Cl(aq) 100 % ionized Answer
Using: M1V1 = M2V2 Here, M2 = M1(V1/V2) = (10 M)(1.00/100.0) = 0.10 M pH = log(0.10) = log(101) = 1.0 Question If 10.00 mL of 1.0 M NaOH is diluted with water to a final volume of 100.0 mL, what is the pH of the final solution? a) 1 b) 13 c) 7 Answer
NaOH is a strong base: NaOH Na+ + OH 100 % dissociation Diluted [OH]: M1V1 = M2V2 = (1.0 M)(10.00 mL/100.0 mL) = 0.10 M pOH = log[OH] = log(0.10) = log(101) = 1.0

HA H+ + A Weak acids are weakly ionized. So, [H+] = [HA] Here, we need to use acid dissociation constants, Ka. We will also need to use the IRE table. Question
What is the pH of a 0.15 M solution of a weak acid, HA, with a Ka of 1.8 x 105? HA a) 1.8 b) 2.8 H+ + A c) 3.5 Answer
I R E HA 0.15 x 0.15 x x H+ 0 +x + 0 +x A x Ka = [H+][A]/[HA] = 1.8 x 105 a) 1.8 b) 2.8 c) 3.5 Answer ( a closer look), Cont.
Ka = [H+][A]/[HA] = 1.8 x 105
Using the quadratic equation, we solve for x; (x)(x)/(0.15 x) = 1.8 x 105 x = [H+] = 0.00165 pH = log[H+] = log(0.00165) = 2.8 Question
Now, using the 5% rule, find the pH of a 0.15 M solution of a weak acid, HA, with a Ka of 1.8 x 105? HA a) 1.8 b) 2.8 H+ + A c) 3.5 Answer
I R E HA 0.15 x 0.15 x x H+ 0 +x + 0 +x A x Ka = [H+][A]/[HA] = 1.8 x 105 (x)(x)/(0.15 x) = 1.8 x 105 Answer ( 5 % rule), Cont.
Using the 5% rule, we assume x<< 0.15; so now we have, (x)(x)/(0.15 x) = 1.8 x 105 x2/0.15 = 1.8 x 105 ; x = 0.00164 Check: (0.00164/0.15) x 100 = 1.1 % 1.1 % < 5 %, so assumption is valid. pH = log[H+] = log(0.00164) = 2.8 % Dissociation
HAc H+ + Ac
% Dissociation = [amount dissociated] x 100 [initial con.] Question
What is the pH of a solution of 0.15 M HAc, which is only 1.1 % ionized? a) 0.82 b) 2.8 c) 2.3 Answer
HAc H+ + Ac % Dissociated = [amount dissociated] x 100 [initial con.] (x/0.15) x 100 = 1.1% X = [HAc dissociated], which is [H+] = 0.00165 M pH = log[H+] = log(0.00165) = 2.8 Question
What (if any) is the difference between the strength of an acid (or base) and the concentration of an acid (or base)? Answer
Strength = extent of ionization HA H+ + A. Stronger acid = larger Ka Concentration = how much HA is present higher molarity = more concentrated Question
Consider solutions of a weak acid HA. If the initial concentration of HA is increased, what happens to the percent dissociation of the acid at constant temperature? A) increase B) decrease C) stay the same What happens to the pH of the solution? A) increase B) decrease C) stay the same Answer
HA H+ + A K = [H+][A]/[HA]
(weak acid) Let initial conc. = [HA]0 Let fraction dissociated = x Equilibrium concs: [HA] = [HA]0(1x) [HA]0 [H+] = [A] = [HA]0x Ka = [H+][A]/[HA] At equ, Ka = ([HA]0x)2/[HA]0 = [HA]0x2 So, if we increase [HA]0, x must decrease % dissociation decreases when initial HA concentration increases Question
What happens to the pH of the solution if the initial [HA] is increased?
A) increase B) decrease C) stay the same Answer
HA H+ + A K = [H+][A]/[HA] Increasing [HA] will increase [H+] (and [A]) so as to keep K constant at a given temperature. pH decreases when initial HA concentration is increased Weak Acid/Base Pairs (HAc/Ac-)

x2/(0.10 x) = 5.6 x 1010 Assuming x << 0.10, we have: x2/0.10 = 5.6 x 1010 x2 = 5.6 x 1011 x = 7.5 x 106; Check assumption with 5% rule: (7.5 x 106/ 0.10) x 100 = 0.0075% 0.0075% < 5%, assumption is valid. Answer, Cont.
x = [H+] = 7.5 x 106 Therefore, the pH is: pH = log[H+] = log(7.5 x 106) pH = 5.1 Polyprotic acids

Ka2 = (0.01+x)(x)/(0.01x) = 0.012 The Ka2 > 105, 5% rule won't work; using the quadratic eq. to solve for x, we get x = 0.0045; [H+] = (0.010+0.0045) = 0.0145 pH = log[H+] = log(0.0145) = 1.8 Question

H3PO4 H+ + H2PO4 Ka1 = 7.5 x 103 Ka1 is much less than 1, so the first equilibrium will lie on the side of the reactant (H3PO4). The other two reactions have even smaller Ka's and will be negligible. The dominant species is H3PO4 (and the solution is acidic). Question
