  1. I assume you mean 1 M and not 1 m. M is molar; m is molal.
    You need two equations.
    equation 1 is
    pH = pKa + log (base)/(acid)

    equation 2 is
    (base) + (acid) = 0.8 M

    Use equation 1 and solve for (base)/(acid) then (base) = k(acid). Then plug that into equation 1 to find (base) and (acid). Convert molarities into grams per liter , then grams/500 mL.
    Post your work if you get stuck.

  4. Here's a reference that's useful for tris systems...(remove the space between the h t, copy and paste => search)
