pH= 7.44
What is the ratio of [H2PO4^-]/[HPO4^2-]

What does the pH become if 25% of the hydrogen phosphate ions are converted to the dihydrogen phosphate ion?

What does the pH become if 15% of the dihydrogen phosphate ions are converted to hydrogen phisphate ions?

Use the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation.
pH = pK2 + log [(base)/(acid)].
a) solve for the ratio directly.
b) choose a convenient number for the acid, use the ratio to calculate the base. Then decrease base by 25% and add that number of mols to acid. Recalculate pH using the HH equation.
c) similar to part b.

    Sorry, but I made two errors. Monocalcium phosphate is monocalcium monohydrogen phosphate which is CaHPO4. The Ca is +2, H is +1, and PO4 is -3 so the +3 and -3 balance. And Bob Pursley did NOT suggest that name of monocalcium dihydrogen …
