Calculate the pH for each of the following cases in the titration of 50.0 mL of 0.230 M HClO (aq) with 0.230 M KOH (aq). The ionization constant (Ka) for HClO is 4.00 x 10^-8.

(b) after addition of 25.0 mL of KOH
(d) after addition of 50.0 mL of KOH

You must learn to recognize where you are on the titration curve.
1. Start by calculating mL KOH to reach the equivalence point.
50.0 x 0.230 = mL x 0.230
Obviously it will be 50.0 mL KOH and that will answer part. That is determined by the hydrolysis of the salt, KClO.
.........ClO^- + HOH ==> HClO + OH^-
initial..0.150M............0.....0
change....-x...............x.....x
equil....0-.150-x...........x.....x

Kb for ClO^- = (Kw/Ka for HClO) = (x)(x)/(0.150-x)
Solve for x = (OH^-) and convert to pH.

For part a.
........HClO + KOH ==> KClO + H2O
....50*0.230 + 25.0*0.230 .....
mmol....11.5.. 5.75......0.....0
change..-5.75..-5.75....5.75...5.75
equil..4.25......0.......5.75..5.75
Ka = (H^+)(ClO^-)/(HClO)
Plug in x for (H^+), get HClO and ClO^- from the ICE chart, solve for x and convert to pH.
Alternatively, you can use the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation.
