Calculate the concentration of all solute species in each of the following solutions of acids or bases. Assume that the ionization of water can be neglected, and show that the change in the initial concentrations can be neglected. Ionization constants can be found in Appendix H and Appendix I .

(a) 0.0092 M HClO, a weak acid

(b) 0.0784 M C 6 H 5 NH 2 , a weak base

(c) 0.0810 M HCN, a weak acid

(d) 0.11 M (CH 3 ) 3 N, a weak base

(e) 0.120 M Fe ( H 2 O ) 6 2+ a weak acid, K a = 1.6 × 10 −7

(a) [ H 3 O + ] [ ClO ] [ HClO ] = ( x ) ( x ) ( 0.0092 x ) ( x ) ( x ) 0.0092 = 2.9 × 10 −8
Solving for x gives 1.63 × 10 −5 M . This value is less than 5% of 0.0092, so the assumption that it can be neglected is valid. Thus, the concentrations of solute species at equilibrium are:
[H 3 O + ] = [ClO]= 5.8 × 10 −5 M
[HClO] = 0.00092 M
[OH ] = 6.1 × 10 −10 M ;
(b) [ C 6 H 5 NH 3 + ] [ OH ] [ C 6 H 5 NH 2 ] = ( x ) ( x ) ( 0.0784 x ) ( x ) ( x ) 0.0784 = 4.3 × 10 −10
Solving for x gives 5.81 × 10 −6 M . This value is less than 5% of 0.0784, so the assumption that it can be neglected is valid. Thus, the concentrations of solute species at equilibrium are:
[ CH 3 CO 2 ] = [OH ] = 5.8 × 10 −6 M
[C 6 H 5 NH 2 ] = 0.00784
[H 3 O + ] = 1.7 × 10 −9 M ;
(c) [ H 3 O + ] [ CN ] [ HCN ] = ( x ) ( x ) ( 0.0810 x ) ( x ) ( x ) 0.0810 = 4.9 × 10 −10
Solving for x gives 6.30 × 10 −6 M . This value is less than 5% of 0.0810, so the assumption that it can be neglected is valid. Thus, the concentrations of solute species at equilibrium are:
[H 3 O + ] = [CN ] = 6.3 × 10 −6 M
[HCN] = 0.0810 M
[OH ] = 1.6 × 10 −9 M ;
(d) [ ( CH 3 ) 3 NH + ] [ OH ] [ ( CH 3 ) 3 N ] = ( x ) ( x ) ( 0.11 x ) ( x ) ( x ) 0.11 = 6.3 × 10 −5
Solving for x gives 2.63 × 10 −3 M . This value is less than 5% of 0.11, so the assumption that it can be neglected is valid. Thus, the concentrations of solute species at equilibrium are:
[(CH 3 ) 3 NH + ] = [OH ] = 2.6 × 10 −3 M
[(CH 3 ) 3 N] = 0.11 M
[H 3 O + ] = 3.8 × 10 −12 M ;
(e) [ Fe ( H 2 O ) 5 ( OH ) + ] [ H 3 O + ] [ Fe ( H 2 O ) 6 2+ ] = ( x ) ( x ) ( 0.120 x ) ( x ) ( x ) 0.120 = 1.6 × 10 −7
Solving for x gives 1.39 × 10 −4 M . This value is less than 5% of 0.120, so the assumption that it can be neglected is valid. Thus, the concentrations of solute species at equilibrium are:
[Fe(H 2 O) 5 (OH) + ] = [H 3 O + ] = 1.4 × 10 −4 M
[ Fe ( H 2 O ) 6 2+ ] = 0.120 M
[OH ] = 7.2 × 10 −11 M

[C 10 H 14 N 2 ] = 0.049 M

[ C 10 H 14 N 2 H 2 2+ ] = 1.4 × 10 −11 M
