A weak acid with an initial pH of 3.2 was titrated with a strong base. 15 mL of 0.1 M NaOH was added to the acid to reach the equivalence point at a pH of 8.6. What would you expect the approximate pH of the analyte to be after the first 5 mL of 0.1 M NaOH was added? A. 5.1 B. 7.2 C. 3.4 D. 8.6

definitely not 8.6.. would be <8.6 for sure.

I will said between 3.2 and 8.6

@cuanchi is there a formula for this, because we don't know anything about the pKa. i would guess it's either 5.1 or 7.2

I am trying to figure out

pH = pKA so at that point half the acid is gone.

  • Cuanchi
we can not calculate the Ka because we don't have the initial volume of the acid, neither the final volume after the titration. We can calculate the moles but not the concentrations
