Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Shaun on Wednesday, July 6, 2011 at 11:13am.

If a liter of a buffer is prepared with a final concentration of .3M monosodium phosphate and .5M disodium phosphate, what is the pH of this buffer? (Hint: Which is conjugate acid (HA) and conjugate base (A-)? What's the pKa for this particular pair of HA and A-?)

So I think the conjugate base HA is disodium phosphate and the conjugate acid A- is monosodium phosphate. Otherwise I'm not sure where to start and I'm not sure why or how I determine that at this point.
