1. ........HNO2 ==> H^+ + NO2^-
I.....0.311......0.......0
C......-x.........x........x
E.....0.311-x......x......x

......KNO2 ==>K^+ + NO2^-
I.....0.189...0......0
C....-0.189..0.189...0.189
E......0.....0.189..0.189

Ka = (H^+)(NO2^-)/(HNO2)
Substitue for Ka,
For (H^+) = x
For (NO2^-) = x(from HNO2) + 0.189(from KNO2)
(HNO2) = 0.311-x
Solve for x = (H^+), then
%ion = [(H^+)/(0.311)]*100 = ?
