Formic acid has the chemical formula HCOOH. It is a colorless
liquid that has a density of 1.220 g/mL. (a) The carbon
atom in formic acid is bound to one H and both O’s. Draw
the Lewis structure for formic acid, showing resonance if
present. (b) Formic acid can react with NaOH in aqueous
solution to produce the formate ion, HCOO-. Write the
balanced chemical equation for this reaction. (c) Draw the
Lewis structure of the formate ion, showing resonance if
present. (d) How many milliliters of a 0.100 M solution of
NaOH would it take to completely react with 0.785 mL of
