d. 1 and 2 only

e. 1 and 3 only




2. (Points: 1)
Carbonic acid is a diprotic acid, H2CO3, with Ka1 = 4.2 * 10^-7 and Ka2 = 4.8 * 10^-11. The ion product for water is Kw = 1.0 ´ 10^-14.


What is the H3O+ concentration in a saturated carbonic acid solution that is 0.037 molar?



a. 3.7 *10^-2

b. 7.4 * 10^-2

c. 6.5 *10^-4

d. 1.2 *10^-4
e. 4.2 * 10^-7
