Chemistry (PLZ HELP)

Hydrazine, N2H4(aq), is used in the preparation of polymers, pharmaceuticals and rocket fuel. Hydrazine has alkaline properties similar to ammonia and will act as a weak base. Given that a 100 mL sample of 0.10 mol/L hydrazine solution has a pH of 10.55 at 25.0 oC, write the formula for the conjugate acid and calculate the Kaof the conjugate acid.

I understand that we have to write the equation for the conjugate acid but I don't understand how to find the values then. I'm hoping someone can help me using the ICE (Initial, Change, Equilibrium) table.

  1. Technically it has two ionizations but the second one is so weak we can ignore it.
    pH = 10.55 so pOH = 3.45. Convert that to OH^. That is about 3E-4 but that's just an estimate.
    ..................N2H4 + H2O ==> N2H5^+ + OH^-
    I.................0.1...........................0.................0
    C.................-x............................x.................x
    E...............0.1-x..........................x..................x
    and you know OH^- and N2H5^+ from the above.

    Write the Kb expression for N2H4 and substitute the E line and solve for Kb N2H4.
    Calculate Ka for the conjugate acid from KaKb = Kw = 1E-14. Post your work if you get stuck.
