Gifblaar is a small South African shrub and one of the most poisonous plants knownbecauseit contains fluoroacetic acid (FCH2COOH), which has a pKaof 2.59.

Calculate the initial concentration of fluoroacetic acid in a solution that has the same pH as a 0.00760 M solution of HCl.

Nitric acid (HNO3) is a strong acid that is completely ionized in aqueous solutions of concentrations ranging from 1% to 10% (1.50 ). However, in more concentrated solutions, part of the nitric acid is present as un-ionized molecules of HNO3. For example, in a 50% solution (7.50 ) at 25°C, only 33% of the molecules of HNO3 dissociate into H+ and NO3. What is the value of Ka for HNO3?

Pyridine (C5H5N) is a particularly foul-smelling substance used in manufacturing pesticides and plastic resins. Calculate the pH of a 0.145  solution of pyridine (Kb = 1.4×10-9 ).

The acetate ion is the conjugate base of acetic acid. The Ka of acetic acid is 1.76×10–5.

What is the pH of a 0.400  solution of sodium acetate?

Write a chemical equation for the hydrolysis reaction that explains why an aqueous solution of CH3NH3Cl is acidic.
