Unformatted text preview: interaction supports this formation? (3 pts) 2). How is determining the K ow useful? What is the equation used to determine the K ow and how would you measure it in the lab? (3 pts) 3). A large amount of formic acid (p K a = 6), a weak acid [AH], was released into the junction (river mouth) where freshwater and saltwater meet. You have been asked to determine where the weak acid will be more soluble in order to track its movement. Using the Henderson-Hasselbach equation, draw a conclusion whether the weak acid will be more soluble in freshwater (pH=6) or saltwater (pH=8). (3 pts)...
