If you had an acetic acid solution that was 0.10 M, what would the acetate concentration have to be in order to get a pH of 5.35?

I tried doing [H+] = 10^(-pH), but I don't think that's right. Please help, I'm stuck.

  1. if H+ is 10^-5.35, so the acetate concentration the same.
    H acetate>><< H+ + aqcetate-

  2. So the concentration would be [H+] = 4.47?
