    5) Ka = [H3O+ ] [OCL ]. = 3.2 x 10^-8
    .................................
    [HOCL ]

    Hypochlorous acid , HOCl , is a weak acid in water with the above Ka

    A) write a chemical equation showing how HOCl behaves as an acid in water

    B) calculate the pH of a 0.175 M solution of HOCl

    C) write the net ionic equation for the reaction between the weak acid HOCl (aq) and the strong base NaOH (aq)

    D). In an experiment , 20.00ml of 0.175 M HOCl (aq) is placed in a flask and titrated with 6.55ml of 0.435 M NaOH (aq)

    (I) Calculate the number of moles of NaOH (aq) added

    (Ii) Calculate [H3O+ ] in the flask after the NaOH (aq) has been added

    (Iii) Calculate the [ OH- ] in the flask after the NaOH (aq) has been added
