Homework Help: General Chemistry

Posted by Matt on Wednesday, February 27, 2008 at 3:20pm.

Vinegar is a 5.0% solution by weight of acetic acid in water. Given that the pH for vinegar is 2.41 and that Ka= 1.8E-5 and the density s 1.00g/mL, what is the percent dissociation of acetic acid in vinegar?

I know the % dissociation equals the amount which did dissociate 5.0%divided by the amount which could have dissociated in this case 1.00 M because it says in the question that this is a 1.00 M solution of CH3COOH. Am I on the right track?
