Recitation 26 October 2009 1. Rank the following in order of increasing acidity (same may be relatively equal). Group Problems NaBr, KNO 2 , HClO 4 , HNO 2 , NH 4 ClO 4 , and NH 4 NO 2 . 2. Calculate the pH of the following solutions: a. 0.1 M NaF (HF K a = 7.2 x 10 -4 ) b. 0.1 M NH 4 Cl (NH 3 K b = 1.8 x 10 -5 ) c. 0.1 M NH 4 C 2 H 3 O 2 (Ammonium Acetate) HC 2 H 3 O 2 K a = 1.8 x 10 -5 NH 3 , K b = 1.8 x 10 -5 3. Calculate the pH of a solution of: a. 0.1 M HF b. 0.1 M HF and 0.1 M NaF Explain using LeChatelier’s Principle why the pH is different for the two solutions above.
