A weak base with Kb=4.240*10^-7 is added to water to make a 2.00*10^-1 M solution. what is the pH?
Since Kb is small, can assume that the dissociation is small relative to initial concentration of weak base.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 24, 2018, 6:01 pm ad1c9bdddf
Hello and thank you for posting your question to Brainmass!
The solution is attached below in two files. the files are identical in content, only differ in format. The first is in MS Word XP Format, while the other is in Adobe pdf format. Therefore you can choose the format that is most suitable to you.
I used this, since formulas were used, and teh equation editor is much nicer than ascii ...
The solution shows how to find the required pH of the base.
Given [OH-], determine pH, acidic/basic/neutral
A water solution is found to have a molar OH- concentration of 3.2 × 10-5. The solution would be classified as
a. acidic b. basic c. neutral d. can't be classified
What salt would be produced by the reaction of H2SO4 with LiHCO3?
a. Li2S b. LiSO4 c. Li2SO4 d. Li2CO3
7. The molar concentration of OH in a water solution is 1.0 × 10-9. The pH of the solution is
a. 9.00 b. 5.00 c. > 9.00 d. < 5.00
