This preview shows page 5 - 10 out of 20 pages.

Cubic equation in 1 unknown {H + }. Can be solved by trial error. The correct solution is the one that yields the positive value ( {H + }=10 -3.963 and pH = 3.963 ) Follow the approach used in this solution to solve problem-1 using the spreadsheet approach, the mass balance (MB) and charge balance (CB) equations. Determine the pH of a solution obtained when H 3 C-COOH or HAc is added to water to a final concentration of 10 -2 M – Assume ideal solution. Just replace HPr by HAc, and Pr by Ac

    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.
