Calculate how many milliliters of 0.100 M HCl must be added to 25.0 ml of a 0.200 M solution of NH3 to prepare a buffer that has a pH of 9.50? Kb = 1.76 x 10^-5

  • Chemistry II -

    .............NH3 + HCl ==> NH4Cl
    initial.....5 mmoles..0.....0
    add..................x.........
    change......-x.......x.......+x
    equil........5.x......0.......+x

    Plug that into the Hederson-Hasselbalch equation.
    pH = pKa + log (base/(acid)
    Substitute into the HH equation and solve for x which will be mmols HCl.
    Then M = mmoles/mL and solve for mL.
    Post your work if you get stuck.
