At 300.K and 1.00 atm, assume that 25 mL of NO gas reacts with 22 mL of
oxygen gas and excess water to produce nitric acid according to the following
O (g) H O(l) 2 HNO (g)
2NO(g) 3 + 2 + 2 ⎯⎯→ 3 .
If all of the nitric acid produced by this reaction is dissolved into 25 mL of
water, what would be the pH of the resulting solution?
Hint: before you begin, think about which reactant is the limiting reagent.
You need to provide an equation which is readable. Most of us on this board write subscripts in regular form; i.e.,
H2O is written as H2O. We write an exponent, such as 32 = 9 as 3^2 = 9.
