Expert Answer

Step 1

An acid dissociation constant which is denoted by ‘Ka’ can be defined as the quantitative measure of the strength of a given acid in the solution.


Step 2

The pH of a given solution can be defined as the measure of the molar concentration of the hydrogen ions present in the solution and is a measure of its basicity or the acidity. The mathematical formula is as follows:

Step 3

The pH of the resultant solution is given to be 2.54.

The concentration of the resultant solution is giv...
