Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by maura on Thursday, March 29, 2012 at 12:12am.

I keep getting wrong answers for this question.
Determine the pH of an HF solution of each of the following concentrations.
a) .280 M
b) 5.3*10^-2 M
c) 2.50*10^-2 M

No Ka has been given. I haven't attempted b or c yet because I want to at least solve a first. So far I got a answer of 3.75 and 1.88 and both are incorrect. I think I know how to solve for this. Using Ka and approximations. I just don't understand where I am going wrong. Thanks in advance!
