a) Are the following statements about a 1.0 M solution of a strong acid, HA, true or false?
[A-] › [H+]: True/False:
False, When HA dissociates, it will form equal amounts of H+ and A_

b) The pH is 0.00: True/False
pH = -log[H+] = -log1 = 0
True
c) [H+] = 1.0 M: True/False
True. Since strong acids completely dissociates, concentration of H+ = 1M

d) [HA] = 1.0 M: True/False
It is false. Since strong acid dissociates, there won't be any undissociated [HA] when dissolved in water.

From the given solubility data given, calculate the value ...

Questions on Acids and Bases

1- What is the difference between a strong acid and a weak acid? Choose from:
A strong acid is dangerous to human health, a weak acid is not.
A strong acid dissociates completely in solution, while a weak acid only dissociates partway.
A strong acid will neutralize a base, but a weak acid isn't strong enough to do so.
A weak acid will not add protons to solution.

8- What assumption is commonly used to simplify the process of finding the pH for a solution of a weak acid? Choose from:

~The quadratic equation is the fastest way to find the pH of a weak acid, and the assumption is that the quadratic equation will work.
~For many weak acid solutions, it is assumed that [H3O+] is small relative to the initial concentration of acid, so the "x is small" approximation is used.
~The concentration of H3O+ is assumed to be directly found from the Ka expression, so all that is needed is to plug the initial concentrations of each species into the Ka expression.
~The concentration of H3O+ in solution is assumed to be equal to the concentration of the weak acid.
