Question Description

I’m studying and need help with a Chemistry question to help me learn.

Acrylic acid is a weak monoprotic acid with Ka = 5.5×10-5 M. NaOH(s) was gradually added to 1.00 L of 8.58×10-2 M acrylic acid.

1)Calculate the pH of the solution after the addition of 3.43×10-2 mol of NaOH(s). 


Student has agreed that all tutoring, explanations, and answers provided by the tutor will be used to help in the learning process and in accordance with Studypool's honor code & terms of service.

Final Answer

[H+] = (8580-8.58v)/(1000+v) * 10^(-2), where v is the volume of NaOH added

v = 149 mL

and:

[H+] = 0.06354

so:

pH = 1.197
