Calculate the equilibrium concentration of all ionic aqueous species in a solution containing 1.30 M HCl and 4.0 M C6H5OH (phenol, Ka=1.6 x 10^-10). What is the pH of the solution?

    How about showing how much already know about the problem? And when you get as far as you can go, please explain what you don't understand about the next step.

    I was just wondering whether HCl and C6H5OH on the reactant side together, or am i supposed to separate the two into two different reaction equations, and then do ICE from there? Because I'm not sure how to create a acid-base reaction with HCl and C6H5OH together on one side... I was thinking separating at first .. HCl => H+ + Cl-, but that seems wrong also

  • Chemistry -

    Separate them. There is no reaction between them. Use Ka from phenol to include (H^+) from HCl and calculate total H+.
