Homework Help: chemistry

if 0.4M NaOH is titrated with 0.4M HF, how do we calcualte the ph at equivalence. The book assumes each is 1L, but why do we use 1L

HF is a weak acid, so you need the dissociation constant. The pH at the equivalence point is found by calculating the pH of a 0.4M NaF solution (a hydrolysis problem). If you erroneously assume that HF is a strong acid, then the answer is simple. The pH at the equivalence point is 7.

how can a weak acid and strong base titration has ph=7 at equivalence. It's only when they are both strong acid and base
