(a) What is the pH of 50 mL of a 0.2M glycolic acid aqueous solution after adding 5 mL of 0.25 M KOH? The pKa of glycolic acis is 3.83 at 25 Celsius. (b) Classify each of the following compounds as either "acidic", "basic", or
2.Glycolic acid is often used in “facial peels” and has a Ka of 1.5x10^-4. If a movie star is to have a solution of pH 2.1 applied to her face at night, what concentration of glycolic acid solution should be made up (assuming
the titration of 25.0 mL of a 0.040 M aqueous solution of maleic acid C2H2(COOH)2, with aqueous 0.10 M NaOH solution. For maleic acid, Ka1 = 0.013 and Ka2 = 8.5 x 10-7 How many milliliters of the 0.10 M NaOH solution are needed to
1. An aqueous solution contains 0.154 M ascorbic acid (H2C6H6O6) and 0.196 M hydrobromic acid. Calculate the ascorbate (C6H6O62-) ion concentration in this solution. Can you explain how to do this please? thank you. Also if you
What volume of 0.200M of aqueous solution of formic acid, a weak monoprotic acid (KA = 1.78x10-4) and 0.200M aqueous solution of NaOH would you mix to prepare a 500mL of a buffer solution of pH = 4.0. I know I need to use the H-H
An aqueous solution of a monoprotic acid is prepared. This acid is known to have a pKa of 8.6. If the acid is 37.5% ionized when in solution, what is the pH of the solution? Not really sure where to start with this question?
