In this worksheet, we will practice calculating the degrees of ionization of weak acids and bases from their dissociation constants.
To 2 significant figures, what is the percent ionization of a 0.10 M solution of acetic acid with a pH of 2.89?
What is the percentage ionization of ammonia in a 0.0325 M solution of ammonia, a weak base with a of ?
Consider the equilibrium for the ionization of acetic acid:
Only a small fraction of a weak acid ionizes in aqueous solution. What is the percent ionization of acetic acid in a 0.100 M solution of acetic acid, ? Take .
What is for the hydrogen sulfate ion, ? In a 0.10 M solution, the acid is 29% ionized.
