An acid with a Ka of 2x10^-6 is used to make a buffer. what is the approximate pH of the solution if the buffer has equal concentrations of both the acid and its conjugate base?

pH = pKa + log [A-/HA]
I guess if the concentration of acid HA equals the conjugate base A-
Log = 0
So the pH would be equal to the pKa and I guess this would be where the greatest buffering capacity would be.
PH = pKa
Yeah, definitely that's what I was thinking that looks right to me.
