Take-Home Assignment #6 1. Calculate and graph the exact titration curve for 50.0 mL of 0.025 M hypochlorous acid with 0.050 M NaOH. Be sure to calculate the initial pH, the pH for at least 4 points before the equivalence point, the pH at the equivalence point, and the pH for at least 4 points after the equivalence point. If the titration is feasible, suggest an appropriate indicator. HClO 4 is a weak acid with a K a of 3.0 × 10 -8 . The initial pH, therefore, is just that of a 0.025 M solution of this weak acid and is found by solving the K a expression for [H 3 O + ], yielding a value of 2.74 × 10 -5 M and a pH of 4.56. At the equivalence point the pH is fixed by the concentration of OCl - , which is the conjugate weak base of HOCl with a K b of 3.33 × 10 -7 . The equivalence point for the titration of 50.0 mL of 0.025 M HOCl with 0.050 M NaOH is at 25.0 mL. The concentration of OCl - , therefore, is 0.01667 M. Solving the K b expression for [OH - ] gives a value of 7.46 × 10 -5 M and a pH of 9.97.

    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.
