Chem 112 Exam 3 SP 2008 Name _______________________ Multiple choice. 6 points each. Partial credit may be awarded if some work or comments are shown. Assume 25 o C, aqueous solutions and K w = 1.00 x 10 −14 unless otherwise stated. 1. Hydrofluoric acid, HF, is a weak acid with K a = 6.8 x 10 −4 . Calculate the pH of a 0.200 M solution of HF. a) 0.70 b) 1.17 c) 1.93 d) 3.17 e) 7.00 2. At a temperature where K w is 1.4 x 10 −13 , a solution has a pH of 7.00. What is true of this solution? (circle all that apply) C. e) the acidity/alkalinity of the solution is not defined by this information 3. A 0.00100 M solution of lactic acid is prepared in ultrapure water. From high precision conductivity measurements, the acid is found to be 30.90 % ionized. What is the K a for lactic acid? 4. A buffer is to be prepared using acetic acid and sodium acetate to a target pH = 5.10. What ratio of the conjugate−base to conjugate−acid must be used to achieve this pH? K a for acetic acid is 1.75 x 10 −5 . 5. At equilibrium in a reaction, which of the following statements must be true? a) the rate of the forward reaction has reached a maximum b) no reaction is occurring c) the rate constants of the forward and reverse reactions must be equal d) there are more products than reactants e) there is no net change in the amount of any reactant or product

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
