If you know how to calculate the pH of solution of a known Ka, then why not this one. It's the same thing. For simplicity, let's call this long molecule just HC.
HC ==> H^+ + C^-
Now (H^+)(C^-)/(HC) = Ka.
Do an ICE chart, calculate (H^+) and pH from there.
If we call succinic acid H2Su, then
H2Su ==> H^+ + HSu^- and
k1 = ......
HSu^- ==> H^+ + Su^=
an k2 = ,......
I assume you can take it from there.
What's an ice chart? I don't think I had learned about that..
Show me how you do the pH of an acid with a Ka.
1.000M of Cyanoacetic acid
pH value of 2
HC3H2NO2<==> H^+ + C3H2NO2^-
Is it right?
Actually I don't know why [H^+] and [C3H2NO2^-] have the same value, also why [HC3H2NO2] equals initial concentration minus [H^+]?
I think I said something wrong.. I mean I know how to calculate the Ka with a known pH value...sorry..
