For a week acid whose ionization constant is 1.75 x 10(-5), the pH of its solution is 3.0. Determine its degree of ionization and its percent ionization.

  • chemistry -

    HA ==> H^+ + A^-
    Ka = (H^+)A^-)/(HA)
    Set up an ICE chart and solve for (HA). Then

    %ion = [H^+)/(HA)]*100 = ?
    degree ion = %ion/100.
