The change in pH when 10 mol of sodium acetate, CH3 COONa, is added to this solution should be explained.
The pH of buffer solution is calculated using the following formula:
This is known as Henderson- Hasselbalch equation. Here, is negative log of acid dissociation constant, is concentration of conjugate base and is concentration of acid.
