Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0For #5 you can get the number of mol of NAOH as well as acid because you know that at the stiochiometry point they are equal.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Yes @Photon336, she need the value of Ka for the lactic acid. According to wikipedia the pKa is 3.86 You need to calculate the concentration of the salt sodium lactate at the equivalence point. The number of salt moles is going to be equal to the number of moles of acid. The final volume is going to be the addition of the volume of the acid plus the volume of the base. Because both (the acid and the base) are the same concentration (0.112M) the volumes are going to be equal (25+25=50mL), then the final volume of the titration is going to be the double of the volume initial of the acid. If you have the same number of moles and the volume is double your concentration will be half of the initial concentration of the acid. Then the concentration of the salt at the equivalence point is going to be 0.112/2= 0.056M. You can do all this with calculations. (I can help you if you need). finally you have to calculate the pH at the equivalence point. This is a basic salt then the pH is going to be above 7. You have 3 options in your answers. You have to calculate. you can use an ICE table or just the shorcut formula [OH]= sqr(( Kw/Ka) x [salt]) If you know [OH] you easily can calculate pOH = log [OH] and then pH=14pOH

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I guess you need to look up the Ka not asked to solve for it; going to work through this myself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0moles lactic acid = 0.02500 x 0.112 =0.0028 moles NaOH needed = 0.0028 volume NaOH = 0.0028 / 0.122 = 0.02295 L total volume = 0.02500 + 0.02295 = 0.0479 L [lactate] = 0.0028/ 0.0479 = 0.0584 M Now Find Ka; Ka = 1.38 x 10^4 Kb = Kw/Ka =7.25 x 10^11 = x^2 / 0.0834  x x = [OH]=2.46 x 10^6 M pOH =5.61 pH =8.33 approx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0NO No That is okai ! NO initially I understood and when i tried doing it again I was confused. I was looking who was online. since pakri was online I asked him. I am sorry for making u disappointed! I'm sorry again. I didn't mean it. I understood it clearly tht is why I closed the question also. Here I am really really sorry!
