Acetic acid, CH3COOH, is a weak organic acid, pKa 4.47.

Determine the position of the equilibrium for the reaction of acetic acid with NaHCO3, and draw the species that predominates at equilibrium.

  1. Doesn't this all depend upon how much acid and how much bicarbonate are there and their concentrations? For example, a small amount of acetic acid and a lot of NaHCO3 leaves just NaHCO3 in excess. Conversely if you have a small amount of NaHCO3 you have acetic acid in excess.
