question from my previous post answered by DrBob - is this because this acts as a polyprotic acid, or because the ratio in the Henderson Hasselbach for HA/A- remains the same?

    I think I've answered this later.

    when I use henderson-hasselbach Ka of HOP4^2- = 4.8 x10^-13 pKa= -lg(4.8 x10^-13)=12.3 substituting I get 7.44-12.3 = lg [base/acid] e^-4.86=[base/acid}= 7.75 x10^-3 according to my textbook this answer is incorrect and should be 0.59 …
