b. what can be said about the pH at this point when the titration is half over?
c. what is the pH at the equivalence point of this titration? 7, >7, <7

  1. a. When half over, you have some HC2H3O2 not yet titrated, you have some extra water produced, some NaC2H3O2 (the sodium acetate salt) produced (present as Na^+ and C2H3O2^-).
    b. When half over, the pH = pKa
    c. The pH at the equivalence point is determined by the salt present; i.e., one has only water and the salt at that point. The pH of NaC2H3O2 (the salt of a strong base and a weak acid) is basic so the pH is >7 (about 8.5 or so).
