Caprytic acid, also called octanoic acid, is an 8-carbon fatty acid that is used as a sanitizer on dairy equipment that comes in contact with milk.The acid has a molar mass of 144.21 g/mol. An aqueous solution of the sanitizer containing 12.25 g/L has a pH of 2.98. What is the acid-dissociation constant, Ka, for caprytic acid?
