Weak Acid - Strong Base Titration

A 50.0-mL portion of 0.200 M HCOOH is titrated with 35.0 mL of 0.200 M KOH. What is the pH after this titration is complete?

Solution Preview

What you need to do is look for moles first...

Moles of HCOOH = (0.050L)0.200M = 0.010 moles
Moles of KOH = (0.035L)0.200M = 0.007 moles

If we look at the numbers we see that the strong species is limiting, (which as a ...
