A buffer is prepared by mixing 45.0 mL of 0.15 M NaF to 35.0 mL of 0.10 M HF (Ka = 6.8x10^-4) Calculate the pH of this buffer after 5.0 mL of 0.05 M HCl is added.

    45 mL x 0.15M NaF = 6.75 mmoles NaF.
    35 mL x 0.10M HF = 3.5 mmoles HF.
    5 mL x 0.05M HCl = 0.50 mmoles H^+.

    ...............F^- + H^+ ==> HF
    initial......6.75....0......3.50
    add HCl.............0.25........
    change.......-0.25..-0.25....+0.25
    equil........6.50....0.......3.75

    Substitute these numbers into the HH equation and solve for pH. Check my work.
