2. i see that the equation is pH=pKa+log[base]/[acid]. but i do not know how to get pKa

3. The acid is acetic acid. Either in your problem or in your text the Ka should be listed as close to 1.8E-5 which is a pKa of 4.74 (pKa = -log Ka). Use the value in your text or notes, not the one I used. The base is acetate. The acid is acetic acid in the HH equation.
