Example 18-14 : Polyprotic Acids -many weak acids contain two or more acidic hydrogens -H 2 PO 4 and H 3 AsO 4 -calculation of equilibria for polyprotic acids is done in a stepwise fashion -ionization constant for each step -consider arsenic acid, H 3 AsO 4 which as three ionization constants K a1 = 2.5 x 10 -4 K a2 = 5.6 x 10 -8 K a3 = 3.0 x 10 -13 -first ionization step for arsenic acid H 3 AsO 4 ↔ H + + H 2 AsO - 4 K a1 = [H + ][H 2 AsO 4 - ]/[H 3 AsO 4 ] = 2.5 x 10 -4 H 2 AsO 4 1= 4 HAsO 4 2= ↔ H + + AsO 4 3- Salts NaCl – NaOH + HCl (does not hydrolyze because weaker than water)
