What is the molarity of an HCl solution if 11.0 mL HCl solution is titrated with 21.6 mL of 0.130M NaOH solution?
HCl (aq) + NaOH (aq)  NaCl (aq) + H2O (l)

Since the acid and base react 1:1, you need to find out how many moles of base reacted, which you can do since you know the volume and concentration. First, convert mL to L by using the conversion factor 1000mL/L, then multiply by the molarity.
(.0216L NaOH)(.130 mol/L NaOH) = .002808 mol NaOH = .002808 mol HCl
Then divide mol HCl by L HCl to get the molarity.
(.002808 mol HCl)/(.011L HCl) = .2552727 mol/L = 0.255M

Problem 10.85
What are the [H3O+] and [OH-] for a solution with the following pH values?

Part A
pH = 3.60
Answer in the order indicated. Express your answers using two significant figures separated by a comma.

Since pH = -log[H+] and Kw = 1.0 x10^-14 = [H+][OH-] you can find both. Note that [H+] is just shorthand for [H3O+].
3.60 = -log[H+] so the inverse log of -3.60 = [H+] = 2.512x10^-4
[OH-]=Kw/[H+] by rearranging the above = 3.981x10^-11
You can double check your answer in that pH + pOH = 14, and since the negative log of the above = 10.4, you're right.

Part B
pH = 6.56
Answer in the order indicated. Express your answers using two significant figures separated by a comma.
