Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is supposed to be review material for me, but I barely remember how to go about solving this stuff, lol! Would I need to do an ICE table? I feel like that isn't the case, because I don't know what one compound is...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then I remembered about the HendersonHasselbach equation but that's not really helping, hahaha... Thinking maybe use the pH to kind the concentration and added that to the concentration of the HCl, but the HCl has such a high concentration that it's almost meaningless. If the pH is within 1 unit of the pKa then it's a good buffer, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0pH = 7.4 simply means your substance is a base. Write it as \(B\), and write down the equation it undergoes with \(HCl\) Then use the new amounts in the Henderson equation.
