These are really tough questions, although they seem simple when one first reads them.

This would qualify as a buffer question however...it starts out as a weak acid problem.

When you are calculating the pH of a weak acid one usually uses the:

Ka = x^2/C-x generic equation, where Ka is the acid dissociation constant, C is the concentration of the acid, and x represents both the hydrogen ion concentration[H+] and the concentration of the ...
