1 Ch. 16: Equilibrium in Acid-Base Systems 16.3a: Acid-Base strength and equilibrium law

2 Definitions Arrhenius Arrhenius A: produce H + in aqueous solution A: produce H + in aqueous solution B: produces OH - in aqueous solution B: produces OH - in aqueous solution very limited very limited Bronsted-Lowry Bronsted-Lowry A: H + donor A: H + donor B: H + acceptor B: H + acceptor more general more general

3 Acid ionization constant equilibrium expression where H + is removed to form conjugate base equilibrium expression where H + is removed to form conjugate base so for: HA + H 2 O H 3 O + + A - so for: HA + H 2 O H 3 O + + A -

4 Strength determined by equilibrium position of dissociation reaction determined by equilibrium position of dissociation reaction strong acid: strong acid: lies far to right, almost all HA is dissociated lies far to right, almost all HA is dissociated large K a values large K a values creates weak conjugate base creates weak conjugate base weak acid: weak acid: lies far to left, almost all HA is stays as HA lies far to left, almost all HA is stays as HA small K a values small K a values creates strong conjugate base creates strong conjugate base

7 [H 2 O], pH and K w conc. of liquid water is omitted from the K a expression conc. of liquid water is omitted from the K a expression we assume that this conc. will remain constant in aqueous sol’n that are not highly concentrated we assume that this conc. will remain constant in aqueous sol’n that are not highly concentrated pH= -log[H + ] pH= -log[H + ] pOH = -log[OH - ] pOH = -log[OH - ] 14.00= pH + pOH 14.00= pH + pOH

8 Example 1 The [OH - ] of a solution at 25 o C is 1.0x10 -5 M. Determine the [H + ], pH and pOH. The [OH - ] of a solution at 25 o C is 1.0x10 -5 M. Determine the [H + ], pH and pOH. K w = 1.0x = [OH - ] x [H + ] K w = 1.0x = [OH - ] x [H + ] [H + ] = 1.0x10 -9 [H + ] = 1.0x10 -9 pH= -log(1.0x10 -9 ) = 9.00 pH= -log(1.0x10 -9 ) = 9.00 pOH = -log(1.0x10 -5 ) = 5.00 pOH = -log(1.0x10 -5 ) = 5.00 acidic or basic? acidic or basic? basic basic

9 Approximations If K is very small, we can assume that the change (x) is going to be negligible If K is very small, we can assume that the change (x) is going to be negligible “rule of thumb” is if initial conc. of the acid is >1000 times its K a value then cancel x “rule of thumb” is if initial conc. of the acid is >1000 times its K a value then cancel x this makes the answer true to +/- 5% and why K a values are given to 2 sig. digs this makes the answer true to +/- 5% and why K a values are given to 2 sig. digs 0

10 Calculating Weak Acids 1. Write major species 2. Decide on which can provide H + ions 3. Make ICE table 4. Put equilibrium values in K a expression 5. Check validity of assumption (x must be less than 5% of initial conc) 6. Find pH

11 Example 2 Calculate the pH of 1.00 M solution of HF (K a = 7.2 x ) Calculate the pH of 1.00 M solution of HF (K a = 7.2 x ) HF, H 2 O HF, H 2 O HF  H + + F - K a = 7.2x10 -4 HF  H + + F - K a = 7.2x10 -4 H 2 O  H + + OH - K w = 1.0 x H 2 O  H + + OH - K w = 1.0 x HF will provide much more H + than H 2 O – ignore H 2 O HF will provide much more H + than H 2 O – ignore H 2 O

12 Example 2 HF  H + + F - HF  H + + F - I 1.00 M 00 C-x+x+x E x xx

13 Example 2 Check assumption: Check assumption:  pH = -log(0.027) = 1.57

14 Example 3 Find pH of M solution of HOCl (K a = 3.5x10 -8 ) Find pH of M solution of HOCl (K a = 3.5x10 -8 ) HOCl, H 2 O HOCl, H 2 O HOCl will provide much more H + than H 2 O, so we ignore H 2 O HOCl will provide much more H + than H 2 O, so we ignore H 2 O HOCl  H + + OCl - HOCl  H + + OCl - I M 00 C-x+x+x E x xx

15 Example 3  Check assumption:  pH = -log(5.9x10 -5 ) = 4.23

16 Example 4 Find K a for propanoic acid given the following information Find K a for propanoic acid given the following information [C 2 H 5 COOH] = 0.10M and pH = 2.96 [C 2 H 5 COOH] = 0.10M and pH = 2.96 [H 3 O + ] = 1.1 x M [H 3 O + ] = 1.1 x M C 2 H 5 COOH + H 2 O  C 2 H 5 COO - + H 3 O + C 2 H 5 COOH + H 2 O  C 2 H 5 COO - + H 3 O + I 0.10 M 00 C-x -1.1 x M +x +1.1 x M +x E 0.10 – x(1.1 x M) 1.1 x M 1) C 2 H 5 COOH + H 2 O  C 2 H 5 COO - + H 3 O + Sol’n 2) Calculate [H 3 O + ] using pH 1.1 x M [H 3 O + ] = 10 -pH [H 3 O + ] = [H 3 O + ] = 1.1 x M Pure water is not included as it does not change 3)
