rhodes (ajr2283) – Homework #9 – Holcombe – (52460) 1 This print-out should have 14 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points A 1 M solution of NaOH is used to titrate a 1 M solution of C 6 H 5 COOH (benzoic acid). If the K a of C 6 H 5 COOH is 5 × 10 - 5 , what is the pH of the solution at the equivalence point? 1. 13 2. 7 3. 5 4. 9 correct 5. not enough information Explanation: Equal volumes of the titrant and analyte will be used to reach the equivalance point. Regardless of the starting volume, at the equivalance point the volume will be double the starting value and all of the benzoic acid will have been converted to benzoate. The solution will be 0 . 5 M C 6 H 5 COO - . K b = K w /K a = 10 - 14 / (5 × 10 - 5 ) = 2 × 10 - 10 [OH - ] = ( K b C b ) 1 / 2 = (2 × 10 - 10 · 0 . 5) 1 / 2 = (10 - 10 ) 1 / 2 = 10 - 5 pOH = 5 pH = 9 002 10.0 points It was found that 25 mL of 0.012 M HCl neutralized 40 mL of NaOH solution. What was the molarity of the base solution? 1. 0.012 M 2. 0.006 M 3. 0.0075 M correct 4. 0.050 M Explanation: V HCl = 25 mL M HCl = 0 . 012 M V NaOH = 40 mL = 0 . 04 L The base is NaOH. To neutralize, mol H + = mol OH - . n H + = 0 . 012 mol L (25 mL HCl) × 1 L 1000 mL × 1 mol H + 1 mol HCl = 0 . 0003 mol H + = n OH - = n NaOH M NaOH = mol L = 0 . 0003 mol NaOH 0 . 04 L = 0 . 0075 M NaOH 003 10.0 points What is the pH when 100 mL of 0.1 M HCl is titrated with 50 mL of 0.2 M NaOH? 1. pH = 7 correct 2. pH < 7 3. pH > 7 4. The p K a of HCl needs to be provided to answer this question.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
