A weak acid, HZ, has a Ka value of 6.52 x 10-5.
(a) Write the reaction of HZ with water.
(b) Write the equilibrium expression for the reaction of HZ with water.
(c) Calculate the pH of a 0.150 M solution of HZ.
(d) The Y- ion reacts with water to form HY and hydroxide ion, as shown in the following equation.
Y- (aq) + H2O (l) HY (aq) + OH- (aq)
Given that [OH-] is 1.77 x 10-5 M in a 0.480 M solution of NaY, calculate each of the following:
(i) The value of Kb for the Y- ion.
(ii) The value of Ka for HY.
(e) Which acid, HZ or HY, is stronger? Justify your answer.
