Unformatted text preview: After taking the smallest amount to zero, if H + or OHis left over, just take the log and get the pH. PROBLEM TYPE II Double arrows means an equilibrium problem and Xs will be in the rice chart. Example: 0.1 mole of HF and 0.5 mole of NaF are mixed to make one liter. R HF + H 2 O H 3 O + + FI 0.1 0 0.5 ( ignore the water because it will not be in the K expression) C X X X E 0.1  X X 0.5 + X Now substitute the E column into the equilibrium expression and solve for X. Since the Ka for HF is so small ( 7.2 X 104 ) the X compared to 0.1 and 0.5 may be ignored so the quadratic equation does not have to be used....
