Solution Summary

This solution is provided in 177 words. It discusses an acid-base reaction and determines if the particular reaction will shift equilibrium to the right. It also references Le Chatelier's effect to further learning.

Solution Preview

If you have an equilibrium...

HB(aq) <==> H+(aq) + B-(aq)

And the Ka = 10^(-10).... because pKa = 10

NaA is the salt of a weak acid (I assume!), so NaA is a weak base.

If you add a weak base to the reaction ...
