Which of the following buffer systems would be the best choice to create a buffer with pH = 7.1?

For the best system, calculate the ratio of the masses of the buffer components required to make the buffer.


Expert Answer

Step 1

The best buffer system to create pH of 7.1 is determined as follows,

pK of HCH = 4.75 pK of HCIO2 1.96 pK of NH 9.25 a pK of HCIO= 7.53

Step 2

The HClO pKa value is close to given pH range hence, HClO/KClO serves as the best choic...
