Unformatted text preview: The K a of acetic acid is 1.7 x 10-5 , 8) What is the pH of a solution that contains 0.05 mole/liter acetic acid (HAc) and 0.03 mole/liter of sodium acetate (NaAc)? 9) If you were to add 0.01 mole/liter of HCl to the solution above what would the pH be? 10) Why is rain even in an unpolluted environment acidic? Is rain water buffered? Write out the relevant reactions. 11) As noted above rain is acidic but the ocean is basic. Why? Is the ocean pH buffered? If so by what? Write out the relevant reactions....
