Experiment 6: Determination of the Equilibrium Constant for Bromocresol Green 9 1. Moles of Acetic Acid
Now we need to calculate the number of moles of acetic acid each time we added 2.00 mL of acetic acid
solution to the bromocresol green solution in Part 2. The volume of acetic acid solution added was 2.00
mL through 8.00 mL. Convert these volumes to liters. The molarity of the acetic acid solution was
calculated on the previous page and is the same for each addition. The moles of acetic acid added can be
found from n = MV.

*From the previous page. This amount should be the same for each addition.
2. Moles of Sodium Acetate (NaAc)
We also need to know the number of moles of sodium acetate used in the mixture for Part 2. This was
calculated on the previous page.
3: Calculating the pH of the acetate solutions
The following table shows the progression of the calculations needed to find the pH of each solution in
Part 2. We first use the moles of the acetic acid and the moles of sodium acetate (already calculated) to
find the ratio of sodium acetate to acetic acid. We then take the log (base 10) of this ratio. The pH of a mol NaAc . The pKa for mol HAc solution that contains a weak acid and its conjugate base is: pH = pKa + log acetic acid is 4.74. Find the pH of each solution.
