what mass of formic acid must be dissolved in 250 ml of deionized water to produce a solution of pH 1.83?[ka of HCOOH=1.77*10^-4, Mw=46]

• science -

[H3O+] = 10^-2.85 = 0.00141 M = [C6H5COO-]

6.3 x 10^-5 = (0.00141)^2 / x
x = 0.032 M

Moles = 0.032 x 0.350 L = 0.011

Mass = 0.011 mol x 122 g/mol = 1.34 g
