Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Saira on Thursday, July 16, 2009 at 3:36am.

I did an experiment on Buffers:

In a polystyrene beaker, mix 20 ml of 0.1M Acetic acid ad 25 ml of 0.1 M sodium acetate and immediately measure the pH. Remove the electrode and add 5 ml of 0.1 M HCL to this buffer. Stir the solution and measure the pH.

This is my data:

Conc.of acetic acid 0.1 M- volume 20mL
Conc.of sodium acetate 0.1M-volume 25ml
Conc. of Hydrochloric acid 0.1M-volume 5 ml

Buffer Solution- pH measured- 4.65
pH calculated ?

Buffer solution + HCL -pH measured- 4.43
pH calculated-?

A. So basically i need to show calculation for the calculated pH before the addition of HCl

B. Show the calculations for the calculated pH after the addition of HCl
