3.091 Fall Term 2004 Homework Quiz #11A solution outline (a) The value of K a for hydroiodic acid HI( aq ) is 3 × 10 9 . Calculate the p H and the p OH of 0.056 M HI( aq ) in water. HI is a strong acid complete dissociation 0.056 M HI(aq) 0.056 M = [H + ] = [I ] pH = –log 10 [H + ] = –log 10 0.056 = 1.25 pOH + pH = 14 pOH = 12.75 (b) The fictitious compound, pandemonium carbonate (Pn 2 CO 3
