Homework Help: Buffer solution

Posted by Kyle on Saturday, March 27, 2010 at 7:34pm.

Solve an equilibrium problem (using an ICE table) to calculate the pH.

a solution that is 0.205 M in CH3NH2 and 0.110 M in CH3NH3Br.

i used th Ka of CH3NH2 and set up the problem as Ka=[H3O][CH3NH2]/[CH3NH3Br], but that was wrong. So i switched the equation to Ka=[H3O][CH3NH3Br]/[CH3NH2] but the pH i calculated from solving that equation was also wrong. Am I using a bad Ka or am I setting up the equation wrong?

The pH's i calculated were 3.63 and 3.09
