Acetic acid dissociates/ionizes itself as follows:
CH3COOH(aq) ⇔ H+(aq) + CH3COO-(aq)
If you add sodium acetate, CH3COONa, to the solution:
a) a precipitate will be formed
b) more acetic acid will be ionized
c) the concentration of hydrogen ions will decrease
d) the solution will become more acidic
Le Chatelier's Principle. Which way will the reaction shift?
