How many moles of NaOH must be added to 1.0 L of 1.4 M HC2H3O2 to produce a solution buffered at each pH?
(a) pH = pKa mol
(b) pH = 3.07 mol
(c) pH = 5.15 mol

  1. Use the Henderson-Hasselbalch equation.
    First find moles acetic acid. M x L = moles.
    .......CH3COOH + OH^- ==>CH3COONa + H2O
    start...moles.... 0.......0
    change..-x........+x........+x
    final..moles-x.....0......0+x

    Then substitute into the HH equation and solve for x. After, I always like to check it by calculating the moles acetate and moles acetic acid remaining, plug into the HH equation and see if it gives the correct pH.

    If 25mL of 2.00M NAOH is added tpo 50mL of 0.10M HC2H3O2 (Ka=1.8*10^-5), what is the pH? moles HC2H3O2= c*v = .1 * .05L = .005 moles NaOH= c*v = .2 * .025L = .005 pH= Pka + log (B/A) = 4.75 + log (.005/.005) = 4.75 I'm not sure
