For propanoic acid (HC3H5O2, Ka = 1.3 10-5), determine the concentration of all species present, the pH, and the percent dissociation of a 0.170 M solution.

PLEASE HELP ME DO THIS PROBLEM.

  • CHEMISTRY -

    I don't like to type all that stuff, so propanoic acid I will call HP.
    HP ==> H^+ + P^-
    Ka = (H^+)(P^-)/(HP)
    H^+ = x
    P^- = x
    HP = 0.170-x
    Substitute into Ka and solve for x, then convert to pH.

    % diss = [(H^+)/0.170]*100 = ??
    Post your work if you get stuck.
