A 0.30M solution of a weak monoprotic acid is 0.41% ionized. what is the acid-ionization constant, Ka for this acid?

Use. HA + H2O <==> H3O + A to figure out X for H3O and A

asked by Viv
  1. 0.30M x 0.0041 = 0.00123
    ...........HA ==> H^+ + A^-
    I..........0.30...0.......0
    C.......-0.00123.0.00123.0.00123
    E......0.299....0.00123.0.00123

    Substitute the E line into the Ka expression and solve for Ka.
