If you don't care what the strength of the buffer is you can do it this way. Then when you finish you can calculate the strength of the solution you have prepared. let x = mL base; then 1000-x = mL acid. 3.5 = 3.74 + log (0.1x)/[(0.1)(1000-x)] Then solve for x and 1000-x. ...

Generally you will be right doing it that way. If the material is soluble and you have a liquid solution (such as HCl, H2SO4, HNO3, etc are all in aq solution) so the solubility rules work very well. Yes, gases are easy. If you're mixing solutions that makes it easy, too.

You can reason this out. pH = pKa + log (base)/(acid) So if pH = pKa, then log (base)/(acid) must be zero. Set that as an equation to get log (base)/(acid) = 0 and 10^0 = ? ? must be 1; how do you get 1 out of log(base)/(acid). The only way to obtain 1 is for (base) = (acid) ...

Yes, 5.75E-8 is the answer for pH = 7.24. You should do pH = -log(H3O^+), then 7.24 = -log(H3O^+) -7.24 = log(H3O^+) (H3O^+) = 10^-7.24 = 5.75E-8

You took my response correctly and the correct answer is the HCN/CN pair because if Ka = 4.9E-10 then pKa = 9.31 which is quite close to the desired pH of 9.2; therefore, it is easy to make solutions in which the ratio of base/acid is close to 1. If you use the HH equation, ...
April 20, 2015

Chemistry
Actually you don't need to use the HH equation at all. The rule is that to make a buffer you want pKa to be within about 1 unit of the desired pH. So convert each of the Ka values to pKa values and choose the one that is within about 1 unit. And if you are good at scanning...
