How many grams of NH4Cl must be added to 0.560 L of 1.90 M NH3 solution to yield a buffer solution with a pH of 8.50? Assume no volume change. Kb for NH3 = 1.8 10-5.

i am confused as how to find the grams?

  • chem -

    Let B= NH3 and BH=NH4Cl


    pH+pOH=14


    so, 14-8.50=pOH

    and

    pkb=-logkb


    You will need to use a version of the henderson-hasselbalch equation.

    pOH=pkb +log[BH/B]



    Solve for the ratio,

    So, [BH/B]= 0.755


    0.560L*(1.90M)= moles of NH3


    Substituting, you should have

    0.775=BH/moles of NH3


    Solve for BH

    moles of BH*(53.49 g/mole)= mass of NH4Cl

    I should point out here that you do not need to modify the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation.
    pH = pKa + log (base)/(acid) is valid for acids and bases. In this case we calculate pKb from Kb, then
    14-pKb = pKa, then proceed with the HH equation as usual.
    8.50 = 9.25 + log (1.90/x)
    Solve for x which is molar NH4Cl and convert to grams in 0.560 L.
