In a 1.070 M aqueous solution of a monoprotic acid, 4.81% of the acid is ionized. What is the value of its Ka?

• chemistry -

........HA ==> H^+ + A^-
Ka = (H^+)(A^-)/(HA)
This tells you that the 1.070 HA ionized 4.81% which means
(H^) = 1.070 x 0.0481 = ?
(A^-) = same as (H^+).
(HA) = [1.070 - (H^+)]

Substitute these values into the Ka expression and solve for Ka.
