2 11-4 l 2-12 Colligative properties Weak acid releases H + = proton donor Weak base binds H + = proton acceptor Weak acids and bases exist in reversible equilibrium as conjugate pairs in aqueous solution due to their tendency to dissociate: law of mass action says: HA H + + A - (dissociation reaction) HA = weak acid; A - = conjugate base equilibrium constant, K eq = [ H + ][ A ] [ HA ] = K dn (dissociation constant) Acids, Bases, pH Note: your book refers to the dissociation constant for an acid ionization reaction as K a . I will use K dn for dissociation, and K an for association, whatever the reaction. Titration of weak acid with base: 2 reversible equilibria (e.g.
