Calculate the pH of 1M solution of acedic acid (pKa = 4.76)?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The pH of the acetic acid solution can be calculated using the formula shown in below

pKa = -log(10)[Ka]

Ka for acetic acid is [H+][CH3COO-]/[CH3COOH] where [ ] indicates the concentration.

Step 2

For acetic acid pKa = 4.76 and -log (10) [H+] = pH

 The pH of the g...
