a.) In 2-3 sentences, describe how propanoic acid (C2H5COOH) and propanoate anion (C2H5COO-) can be used to make a buffer solution if the Ka of propanoic acid is 1.34 x 10-5. b.) Determine the pH if the concentration of propanoic acid was 1.3 x 10-3 M and the concentration of propanoate was 1.8 x 10-2 M. Is this pH in the range of the buffer? c.) Explain if the pH of the solution in part (b) is in the range of the buffer?

firstly, do you understand what a buffer solution is?

  • abb0t
aqueous solution consisting of a mixture of a weak acid and its conjugate base, or vice versa. Hence, it's pH changes very little. Due to the presence of both. they are in equilibrium

@abb0t A buffer is a solution designed to keep the pH from changing, correct?
