Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Alex on Wednesday, November 9, 2011 at 5:12pm.

Strong base is dissolved in 675 ml of 0.200 m weak acid (ka=3.25x10^-5) to make a buffer with a ph of 3.95. Assume that the volume remains constant when the base is added.
HA + OH ---> H2O + A^-

calculate the pka value of the acid and determine the number of moles of acid initially present
-so i got pka=4.488 and 0.135 mol HA

When the reaction is complete , what is the concentration ratio of conjugate base to acid.
i got [A^-]/[HA]=0.2897

Then it says , How many moles of strong base were initially added?... All i know the strong base has to be less than the number of moles of acid but i have no clue how to get the moles of OH^-.

Can you guys help me? Thank you so much!
