Unformatted text preview: respect to weak acids and weak bases. Dissociation of weak acids : Consider a weak acid HA which dissociates in water as HA + H 2 O H 3 O + + A-For simplicity it can be written as HA H + + A-Applying the law of mass action Where K a is known as acid ionization constant (or acid constant). Higher the value of K a greater the degree of dissociation. Acid with high K a value are relatively stronger than acid with lower K a value....
