(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The correct combination from the given reagents that can be used to prepare buffers at the given pH values.

Concept introduction:

A solution that resists a change in the pH on addition of an acid or an alkali is termed as a buffer solution.

### Explanation of Solution

Explanation

The given pH value is 3.0 .

A buffer shows the presence of equal quantities of the weak acid and its conjugate base. Hence, the ratio, [Salt][Acid] , for a buffer solution is approximately equal to 1 .

The relation between pH and pKa is given by Henderson-Hasselbach equation. According to this equation,

pH=pKa+log[Salt][Acid]

Hence, to make a b
