N 2 H + 5 , (CH 3 ) 3 NH + , HF, HCOOH Explanation: The stronger the acid, the larger its K a value and the smaller its p K a value from p K a = - log K a . To find the p K a for the conjugate acid of a weak base, use p K a + p K b = 14. Thus we have (CH 3 ) 3 NH + (p K a = 14 . 0 - 4 . 19 = 9 . 71) (weakest) N 2 H + 5 (p K a = 14 . 0 - 5 . 77 = 8 . 23) HCOOH (p K a = 3 . 75) HF (p K a = 3 . 45) (strongest) 024 1.0 points A 7 . 2 × 10 3 M solution of acetic acid is 5.0% dissociated. In a 7 . 2 × 10 4 M solution, the percent dissociation would be 1. < 5%. 2. None of these 3. > 5%. correct 4. zero. 5. the same. Explanation: 025 1.0 points An aqueous solution of nitrous acid HNO 2 has a pH of 1.96. The ionization constant of this acid is 5.0 × 10 4 . How much nitrous acid was used to prepare one liter of this solution? (Approximate the full quadratic equation.) Correct answer: 11 . 3 grams. Explanation: 026 1.0 points For a solution labeled “0.10 M H 2 SO 4 (aq),” 1. the pH is less than 1.0. correct 2. the pH is greater than 1.0. 3. the pH equals 1.0. 4. [SO 2 4 ] = 0.10 M. 5. [HSO 4 ] is greater than 0.10 M. Explanation: 027 1.0 points

    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.

    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.
