A.Determine the pH of the solution.

a solution that is 1.17% HCl by mass (Assume a density of 1.01 g/mL for the solution.)

B. Amphetamine (C9H13N) is a weak base with a pKb of 4.2. Calculate the pH of a solution containing an amphetamine concentration of 279 mg/L.

    A.
    1.17% by mass means 1.17g HCl/100 g soln.
    mols HCl = grams/molar mass
    Convert 100 g to mL using density.
    Then M = mols/L

    B. To save typing let's call amphetamine BNH2. M BNH2 = 0.279/molar mass = ?
    ..........BNH2 + HOH ==> BNH3^+ + OH^-
    I.........?..............0.........0
    C........-x..............x.........x
    E.........?-x.............x.........x

    Substitute from the ICE chart into the Kb expression for amphetamine and solve for x = OH^-, then convert that to pH.
