Posted by Natalie on Monday, November 11, 2013 at 11:05pm.

Assume that the normal blood buffer contains 0.00080 M carbonic acid and 0.0085 M hydrogen carbonate, the pKa = 6.35 for carbonic acid and the volume of blood in the body is 7.00 L. The blood pH, due to disruption is now 7.20. What is the ratio of [HCO3−]/[H2CO3] now that the blood has been challenged? How many moles of hydrogen carbonate must be added to the blood to bring the carbonic acid/hydrogen carbonate ratio back to a normal pH = 7.4? How many milliliters of 0.10 M hydrogen carbonate must be added to the blood?
