Question

Citric acid, C_{3}H_{5}O(COOH)_{3},
which is present in citrus fruits, is a triprotic acid. Calculate
the concentration of the citrate,
C3H5O(COO)_{3}^{3-} , of a 0.040M solution of
citric acid. Ka,1 = 7.4 x10^{-4}, Ka,2 = 1.7 x
10^{-5}, Ka,3 = 4.0x 10^{-7}

a. 5.08 x10^{-3} M

b. 1.7x10^{-5} M

c. 2.29

d. 1.33 x 10^{-9} M

e. 8.87

Answer #1

Is our assumption valid? 1.7x10-5 dissociated/ 5.08x10-3 initial =
0.33% dissociation = OK!! What if we did not assume? Would the H+
from the second dissociation be enough to change the pH? We can
approximate by using our x value to compare 5.08x10-3 with
(5.08x10-3 + x) 5.08x10-3 + 1.7x10-5 = 0.005737, which produces a
pH of 2.24, so the second dissociation does not significantly
change p.

This equilibrium determines how much citrate ion is in solution,
but its initial concentrations are determined by the previous two
dissociations

Citric acid is a triprotic acidwith Ka values of 7.4 x 10-4, 1.7
x 10-5, and 4.0 x 10-7 for the first, second, and third ionization

Phosphoric acid is a triprotic acid, and the Ka values are given
below. Calculate pH, pOH, [H3PO4], [H2PO4 2-], [HPO4 -], and [PO4
3-] at equilibrium for a 5.00 M phosphoric acid solution.
Ka1 = 7.5 x 10^-3
Ka2 = 6.2 x 10^-8
Ka3 = 4.2 x 10^-13

solution. (Ignore water dissociation).

a) In 2-3 senteces describe how propanic acid and propanoate
anion can be used to make a buffer solution if the ka of propanic
acid is 1.34 x 10^-5

x10^-3 M and the concentration of propanoate was 1.8x10^-2 M. Is
this pH in the rage of the buffer?
c) explain if the pH of the solution in part b is in the range
of thie buffer?

8. Calculate the hydrogen ion concentration of the weak acid in
each of the following solutions. Note that the ionization constants
may be such that the change in electrolyte concentration cannot be
neglected and the quadratic formula or successive approximations
may be required.

( Ka = 1.4 x 10 -3 )

in order to reach the
equivalence point.
