# Ch. 14-15: Acids, Bases and Solubility AP Review Questions **On AP test, if in doubt use 3 significant digits. It is always correct.

**For logs: If Ka = 1.8 X10-5, then pKa = 4.7932685. Ka has two significant digits. pKa should be 4.79, since the 4 tells the power (the 7,9 are significant.) ** For strong acids: #Oxygens - # Hydrogens is 2 or greater. H2SO4 strong, H2SO3 weak, HIO3 strong etc. ** Acid strength increases with the number of oxygens. (The more oxygens, the better the negative charge can be supported and be made stable when the H+ leaves.) **Molarity = mol / L = mmol / ml ** For buffer solutions the weak acid must have a pKa within one pH unit of the desired buffer pH. **In titrations: At the halfway point to equivalency HA will equal AHA + OH- ↔ H2O + A – 1.0M 0.5M -0.5 -0.5 +0.5 0.5 0.5 pH = pKa + log {[A-] / [HA]} pH = pKa At the equivalence point: for strong acids: the titration curve is steep and the equivalence point equals pH = 7. (strong acids and strong bases completely neutralize one another to make a neutral pH of 7.) but for weak acids/weak bases: the titration curve has less of a steepness (it is flatter) and the equivalence point is determined by stoichiometry and the dissociation of the weak acid/ weak base, not by pH. It will not be neutral! (see textbook p. 696-716) {The pH at the equivalence point of a weak acid with a strong base is always greater than 7, because the anion of the acid (that is left in solution) is a base. The weaker the acid, the higher the pH at the equivalence point. The pH at the equivalence point of a weak base with a strong acid will be less than 7, since the hydrated base is acidic. The weaker the base, the lower the pH at the equivalence point.}
