Homework Help: College Chemistry 100

Posted by Marie on Thursday, November 11, 2010 at 10:40am.

The topic is about acids, bases, and salts. The two equations are given: H20 + HCL -> H30 + CL; H20 + HC2H3O2 <-> H30 + C2H3O2

The question is: A solution with a volume of one liter contains 0.45 mole HC2H3O2 and 0.48 mole C2H3O2 ion. (Ka for HC2H302 is 1.82 x 10-5) What is the [H+] of the solution and the pH of this solution?

I am just not sure where to start. The formula is pH = -log[H+]; the expression for Ka and Kb would be Ka = [H+][C2H3O2-]/[HC2H3O2]; Kb = [NH4+][OH-]/[NH3]

Thanks.
