Please walk me through the calculation of determining how much NaOH is needed to raise a 1 liter solution of acetic acid and water with a pH of 4.5 to a final pH of 6.0 ---- this would be at 25 degrees C? What happens in this system if temperature is 55 degrees C?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 15, 2022, 5:56 pm ad1c9bdddf
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 ...
The solution determines the amount of NaOH required to raise acetic acid solution and water pH from 4.5 to 6.0.
