    Please help with the following problems.

    a.) Giving the reason for your answer, which would you expect to have the higher value of pH, a 1.0M solution of the strong acid, HCl or a 1.0M solution of the weak acid, acetic acid, CH3COOH?

    b.) Why is it that we can say that ozone in the stratosphere is beneficial to mankind, but ozone at the surface of the earth is harmful to mankind?

    c.) If you dissolve 0.0500 mol of HCl, a strong acid, in 10.0 liters of water.

    2. a.) Giving the reason for your answer, which would you expect to have the higher value of pH, a 1.0M solution of the strong acid, HCl or a 1.0M solution of the weak acid, acetic acid, CH3COOH?

    since a strong acid dissociates easily to give H+ ions than a weak acid, it means that concentration of H+ ions in a solution of strong ...
