Design a lab to determine the equilibrium constant for the addition of acetic acid (CH3 COOH

to water. You may assume that you have a source of store bought vinegar, a pH probe and
other common lab equipment.

Bonus follow up! How could you estimate the equilibrium constant for sodium acetate and water? Can you think of a way to estimate the constant for chloroacetic acid
(CH2 ClCOOH) in water?
