CHEMISTRY 1008 Name: ________________________ Homework Assignment #9 Due: Thursday, April 7, 2011 1. (4 pts) The pH of human blood is 7.40. Assuming that the principle buffer system in blood is HCO 3 - /H 2 CO 3 , calculate the ratio [HCO 3 - ]/[H 2 CO 3 ]. (H 2 CO 3 K a = 4.2x10 -7 ) Is this buffer more effective against added acid or bases? (explain) 2. (6 pts) A buffer solution was produced by mixing 60.0 mL of 0.10M NH
