8. (0.8 pts) Calculate the pH of a solution of 0.0030 M potassium arsenite, KH 2 AsO 3 . The conjugate weak acid of the arsenite ion, H 3 AsO 3 has K a = 5.1 x 10 −1 0 . (It only has one acidic H in water.) pH= 9.(a) (0.4 pts) Citric acid is a triprotic weak acid with pK a 's = 3.13, 4.76 and 6.40. Let H 3 Cit represent the fully protonated form, and circle the conjugate acid/base pair below that should be chosen for a buffer at pH = 4.65. Circle one : H 3 Cit / Cit 3 ̶ H 2 Cit ̶ / HCit 2 ̶ HCit 2 ̶ / Cit 3 ̶ H 3 Cit/ HCit 2 ̶ H 3 Cit / H 2 Cit ̶ (b) (0.5 pts) Calculate ratio of conjugate base-to-conjugate acid to prepare the pH 4.65 buffer in part (a). Ratio = (c) (0.7 pt) If the ionic strength of the buffer solution has to be 0.0250 M, then what are the required concentrations of the conjugate acid and base forms? Acid form Base form

10. A solid sample (1.3934 g) of impure weak acid is dissolved in 50.00 mL water and titrated with NaOH ( 0.1107 M). The equivalence point occurs at 43.25 mL. At this point, pH = 8.79. The weak acid has a molar mass of 244.17 g/mol a) (0.5 pt) What is the % (wt/wt) of the weak acid in the impure solid sample? % (wt/wt) in original sample = b) (0.5 pt) What is K a for this weak acid? K a =

11. (1 pts) A biochemical reaction is to be carried out in 250.00 mL solution and buffered to physiologic pH of 7.20 using a conjugate acid/base pair, pK a = 6.98. Because of the fragility of the proteins involved and their limited solubility, the pH must not change by more than + 0.05 pH units during the reaction. What must the concentration be, of each member of the buffering

    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.
