What is the effect on the concentration of acetic acid, hydronium ion, and acetate ion when the following are added to an acidic buffer solution of equal concentrations of acetic acid and sodium acetate:

(a) HCl

(b) KCH 3 CO 2

(c) NaCl

(d) KOH

(e) CH 3 CO 2 H

(a) The added HCl will increase the concentration of H 3 O + slightly, which will react with ${\text{CH}}_{3}{\text{CO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}$ and produce CH 3 CO 2 H in the process. Thus, $\left[{\text{CH}}_{3}{\text{CO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}\right]$ decreases and [CH 3 CO 2 H] increases.
(b) The added KCH 3 CO 2 will increase the concentration of $\left[{\text{CH}}_{3}{\text{CO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}\right]$ which will react with H 3 O + and produce CH 3 CO 2 H in the process. Thus, [H 3 O + ] decreases slightly and [CH 3 CO 2 H] increases.
(c) The added NaCl will have no effect on the concentration of the ions.
(d) The added KOH will produce OH ions, which will react with the H 3 O + , thus reducing [H 3 O + ]. Some additional CH 3 CO 2 H will dissociate, producing $\left[{\text{CH}}_{3}{\text{CO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}\right]$ ions in the process. Thus, [CH 3 CO 2 H] decreases slightly and $\left[{\text{CH}}_{3}{\text{CO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}\right]$ increases.
(e) The added CH 3 CO 2 H will increase its concentration, causing more of it to dissociate and producing more $\left[{\text{CH}}_{3}{\text{CO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}\right]$ and H 3 O + in the process. Thus, [H 3 O + ] increases slightly and $\left[{\text{CH}}_{3}{\text{CO}}_{2}{}^{\text{−}}\right]$ increases.

What is the effect on the concentration of ammonia, hydroxide ion, and ammonium ion when the following are added to a basic buffer solution of equal concentrations of ammonia and ammonium nitrate:

Which acid in [link] is most appropriate for preparation of a buffer solution with a pH of 3.1? Explain your choice.

To prepare the best buffer for a weak acid HA and its salt, the ratio $\frac{\left[{\text{H}}_{3}{\text{O}}^{\text{+}}\right]}{{K}_{\text{a}}}$ should be as close to 1 as possible for effective buffer action. The [H 3 O + ] concentration in a buffer of pH 3.1 is [H 3 O + ] = 10 −3.1 = 7.94 $×$ 10 −4 M
We can now solve for K a of the best acid as follows:
$\begin{array}{}\\ \\ \\ \\ \phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\frac{\left[{\text{H}}_{3}{\text{O}}^{\text{+}}\right]}{{K}_{\text{a}}}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}=1\\ {K}_{\text{a}}=\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\frac{\left[{\text{H}}_{3}{\text{O}}^{\text{+}}\right]}{1}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}=7.94\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}×\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}{10}^{-4}\end{array}$
In [link] , the acid with the closest K a to 7.94 $×$ 10 −4 is HF, with a K a of 7.2 $×$ 10 −4 .

Which acid in [link] is most appropriate for preparation of a buffer solution with a pH of 3.7? Explain your choice.

Which base in [link] is most appropriate for preparation of a buffer solution with a pH of 10.65? Explain your choice.

For buffers with pHs>7, you should use a weak base and its salt. The most effective buffer will have a ratio $\frac{\left[{\text{OH}}^{\text{−}}\right]}{{K}_{\text{b}}}$ that is as close to 1 as possible. The pOH of the buffer is 14.00 − 10.65 = 3.35. Therefore, [OH ] is [OH ] = 10 −pOH = 10 −3.35 = 4.467 $×$ 10 −4 M .
We can now solve for K b of the best base as follows:
$\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\frac{\left[{\text{OH}}^{\text{−}}\right]}{{K}_{\text{b}}}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}=1$
K b = [OH ] = 4.47 $×$ 10 −4
In [link] , the base with the closest K b to 4.47 $×$ 10 −4 is CH 3 NH 2 , with a K b = 4.4 $×$ 10 −4 .

Which base in [link] is most appropriate for preparation of a buffer solution with a pH of 9.20? Explain your choice.

What is the pH of 1.000 L of a solution of 100.0 g of glutamic acid (C 5 H 9 NO 4 , a diprotic acid; K 1 = 8.5 $×$ 10 −5 , K 2 = 3.39 $×$ 10 −10 ) to which has been added 20.0 g of NaOH during the preparation of monosodium glutamate, the flavoring agent? What is the pH when exactly 1 mol of NaOH per mole of acid has been added?
