A solution of an unknown weak acid, HA, is titrated with 0.100 M NaOH solution. The
equivalence point is achieved when 36.12 mL of NaOH have been added. After the
equivalence point is reached, 18.06 mL of 0.100 M HCl are added to the solution and the pH
at that point is found to be 5.20. What is the pKa of this unknown acid?

If I didn't mess up somewhere the pKa = 5.20. Interesting problem.
mmols NaOH added = 36.12 x 0.1 = 3.612
...........HA + NaOH ==> NaA + H2O
So at the equivalence point you have 3.612 mmols NaA in solution.
Now you add 18.06 mL x 0.1M = 1.806 mmols
..........A^- + H^+ ==> HA
Use the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation and solve for pKa
5.20 = pKa + log (1.806)/(1.806)
pKa = ?
