How much more acetic acid (pKa = 4.76) than acetate should be in solution to maintain a pH of 4.00?

  • Chemistry -

    4.00 = 4.76 + log b/a
    b/a = ?

  • Chemistry -

    When I solve for b/a it equal 0.17, but I'm supposed to find how much more acetic acid should be in the solution.. How do I do that?
