Unformatted text preview: 3 , which you can get from a mass action calculation. 2. 10-2 M of a particular acid (lets refer to it as HA) is added to pure water. The pK a for this acid is 7. What is the resulting pH? The important part of the problem is to write out all constraints on the system: electroneutrality, mass action, mass conservation. You can then attempt to solve by making simplifying assumptions....
