Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Sandra on Friday, March 18, 2011 at 8:57pm.

A beaker with 100 mL of an acetic acid buffer with a pH of 5.00 is sitting on a benchtop. The total molarity of acid and conjugate base in this buffer is 0.100 M. A student adds 6.10 mL of a 0.260 M HCl solution to the beaker. How much will the pH change? The pKa of acetic acid is 4.760.

I got 0.27 as the change, but it says I made a rounding error, and I can't find my rounding error. I also got 0.26 and 0.25, but they didn't work.
