Step 1

Given,

Molarity of HI = 7.6 M = 7.6 mol/L

pH of the solution = 3.20

Volume of pH solution = 500.0 mL = 0.5 L  (1mL = 0.001 L)

From the pH, we can calculate the molarity of H+ ions in the solution as :

Step 2

From the volume of the solution  given, we can calculate the moles of H+ ions :

Step 3

HI is a strong acid and it will dissociate completely in solution to give H+ ion and I- ion.

HI (aq) → H+ (aq) + I- (aq)

[HI] = [H+] = [I-]

So, the number of moles of H+ ion in HI solution must be same as that of the H+ in the buffer solution to get a pH of...
