Acid-Base Equilibria: A Review CHM 102 - Sinex Try to answer the questions posed before pushing the answer buttons using the cursor (move mouse). This is set up as a PowerPoint show so it will not print. Answers Don’t look at the answers until you think about the question!!!! PowerPoint 2002 required
How do the following quantities change if the (H + ) increases? variable(H + )pH(OH - )pOH change Answers (H + )(OH - ) = K w or pH + pOH = 14 at 25 o C
How does the percent dissociation vary for the following acids? Ranks the acids (1-strongest…). Acetic acid Formic acid Benzoic acid Hydrochloric acid What do you need to look up to address this question? 1.8 x 10 -5 1.8 x 10 -4 6.5 x 10 -5 very large – strong acid Hint– K a ’s 1 2 3 4 Answer
What is the cause of the K b variation for the series? How does the structure differ for the series of compounds listed below? Decreasing electronegativity of central atom Answer
How do the strengths vary as the position of the fluorine changes? Weaker acids Stronger bases Answer carboxylic acids amines Press again to repeat These are all substituted benzenes. – Chime structureChime structure
HCN HCOOH HCN HCOOH How do the two weak acids below differ based on the distribution diagram? Answers HCN is weaker than HCOOH. Push the acid buttons to return or flip to either diagram.
Will the following solutions buffer? solutionbuffer?solutionbuffer? 0.1 M HCOOH 0.1 M NaHCOO yes 0.1 M HCOOH 0.1 M NaOH no 0.1 M HCl 0.1 M NaCl no 0.1 M HNO 2 0.05 NaNO 2 yes 0.1 M HCOOH 0.05 M NaOH yes* 0.1 M NaCOOH 0.05 M NaOH no Answers *can form salt by partial neutralization with base
How do you prepare a buffer with a pH of 4.5? Ideally find a weak acid with a pK a of 4.5 and prepare a solution where (HA) = (A - ). Ideal Answer In reality, acetic acid with a pK a of 4.74 is the closest to the required pH. So what next? For acetic acid, the salt/acid ratio is found from rearranging the K a and substituting in the pH: Real Answer
The amino acid glycine is amphoteric. Why is it an acid and a base in one? Loss of H + Gain of H + H 2 N-CH 2 -COOH H 3 N + -CH 2 -COOHH 2 N-CH 2 -COO - Chime structure Use the mouse click to see animation.
The amino acid glycine forms a Zwitterion. How does this happen? Transfer of H + from carboxylic acid group to amine group. H 2 N-CH 2 -COOH H 3 N + -CH 2 -COO - + - A dipolar ion forms. intramolecular acid-base reaction Chime structure Use the mouse click to see animation.
Which species of glycine goes where on the distribution diagram? Answers
saltpHSaltpH NaNO 3 7NaF>7 NaNO 2 >7NaBr7 NH 4 Cl<7KCH 3 COO>7 What is the pH of the following salts in aqueous solution? Answers weak acid anions, A -, produce OH - weak base cations, BH +, produce H +
Rank the following 0.10 M solutions in order of increasing acidity. HClNaCl NaCNNH 4 ClCH 3 COOH KOH HCl > CH 3 COOH > NH 4 Cl > NaCl > NaCN > KOH ______ > ______ > ______ > ______ > ______ > ______ most acid least acid Answer
Why does the pH of a sodium cyanide decrease on dilution? On dilution, less and less hydroxide ion is produced by hydrolysis of the salt. Answer

Answers
Why does the pH of neutrality change? As temperature increases, K w increases; hence (H + ) increases, which causes pH to decrease. Answers
