Please do not put long lists of questions as it is unlikely that they will all get answered. Have you had go at answering any of them?

1)
if pH =11.89 then
pOH=14-11.89=2.11

(this assumes that Kw=10^-14, i.e. that the solution is at ca 25C)

[OH-]=10^-pOH

2)
if concentration is 0.011M then the OH- concentration is twice this as each mole of CaOH2 yields two moles of OH-

so[OH-]=0.022M

pOH=-log([OH-]/mole litre^-1)

then pH=14-pOH
(same assumption as above)

B
1)
HA<-> H+ + A-
at start
0.060M
at equilibrium
0.06-x x x

if pH=3.44 then x=[H+]=10^-3.44

Ka=[H+][A-]/[HA]
so
Ka=x^2/(0.06-x)

find Ka
