Chemistry
If you have a list of acids or bases and their conjugate salts, and are asked which pairs create the best buffer, how would you know which are best?

chemistry
We're studying acids and bases; the question states that 50mL of 0.1M HNO3 solution is mixed with 25mL of 0.1M NaOH. What is the pH? I thought that I would use the Henderson-Hasselbach equation; but my answer does not match the one give in the solution. Any help?

I am struggling with organizing stoichiometry problems; I know how to solve them after they're set up. Here is an example: "An organic compound with a FW of 417 was analyzed for ethoxyl {CH3-CH2O-} groups with the rxn: ROCH2CH3 + HI --> ROH +CH3CH2I CH3CH2I + Ag + ...

Two point charges lie on the x axis. A charge of + 6.5 µC is at the origin, and a charge of -1.5 µC is at x = 10.0 cm. What is the net electric field at x = -2.0 cm? I found the electrical field for each charge using the equation E= k(q)/ r^2. My calculations were...

A neutron collides elastically with a helium nucleus (at rest initially) whose mass is four times that of the neutron. The helium nucleus is observed to rebound at an angle '2 = 41° from the neutron's initial direction. The neutron's initial speed is 5.6 105 m/...

An explosion breaks an object into two pieces, one of which has 3.20 times the mass of the other. If 8000 J were released in the explosion, how much kinetic energy did each piece acquire? I started with using KE = (1/2)mv^2 and m1v1 = m2v2. Then (1/2)m1(v1)^2 + (1/2)m2(v2)^2...

A 85 kg trampoline artist jumps vertically upward from the top of a platform with a speed of 3.5 m/s. How fast is he going as he lands on the trampoline, 3.0 m below? If the trampoline behaves like a spring of spring constant 5.2 x 10^4 N/m, how far does he depress it? My ...

A block of mass m1 = 4.50 kg sits on top of a second block of mass m2 = 13.9 kg, which in turn is on a horizontal table. The coefficients of friction between the two blocks are µs = 0.300 and µk = 0.100. The coefficients of friction between the lower block and the ...

Seatbelts provide two main advantages in a car accident: (i) they keep you from being thrown from the car, and (ii) they reduce the force that acts on you during the collision to survivable levels. The second benefit can be illustrated by comparing the net force exerted on the...
