4 Solutions of Acids and Bases: The Leveling Effect No acid stronger than H 3 O + and no base stronger than OH – can exist in aqueous solution, leading to the phenomenon known as the leveling effect. Any species that is a stronger acid than the conjugate acid of water (H 3 O + ) is leveled to the strength of H 3 O + in aqueous solution because H 3 O + is the strongest acid that can exist in equilibrium with water. In aqueous solution, any base stronger than OH – is leveled to the strength of OH – because OH – is the strongest base that can exist in equilibrium with water Any substance whose anion is the conjugate base of a compound that is a weaker acid than water is a strong base that reacts quantitatively with water to form hydroxide ion

10 H 2 SO 4 2 H + + SO 4 2- in dilute solutions...occurs ~100% H 2 SO 4 H + + HSO 4 1- & HSO 4 1- H + + SO 4 2- One gram of concentrated sulfuric acid (H 2 SO 4 ) is diluted to a 1.0 dm 3 volume with water. What is the molar concentration of the hydrogen ion in this solution? What is the pH? x mol H 2 SO 4 = 1 g H 2 SO 4 Solution) First determine the number of moles of H 2 SO 4 Sample 1) = mol H 2 SO 4 OVERALL: pH = - log [H + ] pH = M0.020 M substitute into equation pH = - log [0.020 M] 98 g H 2 SO 4 1 mol H 2 SO 4

11 A volume of 5.71 cm 3 of pure acetic acid, HC 2 H 3 O 2, is diluted with water at 25 o C to form a solution with a volume of 1.0 dm 3. Step 2) Find the number of moles of acid. x mol acetic acid = 6.00 g HC 2 H 3 O 2 = 0.10 mol acetic acid (in 1 L) M = 0.1 molar HC 2 H 3 O 2 Step 3) Find the [H + ] K a = Step 1) Find the mass of the acid Mass of acid = density of acid x volume of acid = 1.05 g/cm 3 x 5.71 cm 3 = 6.00 g Molarity: M = mol / L Substitute into equationM = 0.10 mol / 1 L What is the molar concentration of the hydrogen ion, H +, in this solution? (The density of pure acetic acid is 1.05 g/cm 3.) (From the formula of acetic acid, you can calculate that the molar mass of acetic acid is 60 g / mol).
