A student plans to titrate 25.00 mL of a .098 M HCOOH solution with .227 NaOH solution. Calculate the volume of NaOH (in mL) that will be needed to reach the equivalence point and calculate the anticipated pH at the equivalence point.

- at equivalence point, [HCOONa] = (0.025 * 0.098) * 1000 / (25 + 10.8) = 0.0684 M. PH = 0.5 * Pkw + 0.5 * Pka + 0.5 * log C = 0.5 * 14 + 0.5 * 4.74 + 0.5 * log (0.0684) = 8.21. so PH = 8.21

- sorry correction please: Pka of HCOOH = 3.8. so PH = 0.5 * 14 + 0.5 * 3.8 + 0.5 * log (0.0684) = 8.21. so PH = 7.74. Thank you.

- PH = 0.5 * 14 + 0.5 * 3.8 + 0.5 * log (0.0684) = 7.74. so PH of the solution is 7.74.

- molarity of HCOONa =( molarity of NaOH * molarity of HCOOH) /( volume of NaOH + volume of HCOOH). which is (0.225*0.098) / (10.79+25) = 0.000616M. then le the molarity of HCOONa be C, we can calculate the equivalent pH. therefore pH = 1/2 [ pKw + pKa + log C ]. but Ka of HCOOH acid = 1.77*10^-4 therefore we can calculate the pKa, pKa = -log Ka = -log(1.77*10^-4) = 3.75 ; pKw = -log Kw = -log(1.0*10^-14) = 14 ; therefore equivalent pH = 0.5[ 14+3.75+log0.000616] = 0.5[14+3.75-3.21] = 0.5[14.54] = 7.27, therefore the exact pH is 7.27
