Consider a weak acid HX. If a 0.10 M solution of HX has a pH of 5.87 at 25°C, what is ΔG° for the acid's dissociation reaction at 25°C?

  • CEMISTRY -

    pH = -log(H^+) = approxmately 1E-6
    Solve for (H^+).
    ..........HX ==> H^+ + X^-
    initial...0.1.....0......0
    change...-x.......x......x
    equil...0.1-x.....x.......x

    Ka = (H^+)(X^-)/(HX)
    Then dGo = -RTlnK
