    PKa and equilibrium constant values

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    I have the following problem: the pKa values for H2SeO3 at 25 degrees C are 2.64 and 8.27. Write the base hydrolysis equilibrium equations for SeO3^2-(aq) and HSeO3 ^- (aq) ions, and calculate the equlibrium constant values for each equilibrium.

    I think that I am completely stuck on how to approach this equation. Please help!
