How do you determine ph when concentration of futylamine is equal to concentration of conjugate acid graphically?

I have a titration curve, and I have the concentration for futylamine, but not the conjugate acid. I also have the molecular equation and net ionic one and an expression for ka, but I have no idea... more

why is it harder to determine experimentally the pka and ka of Hcl?

in class, we experimentally recorded pH vs volume of base added to find the equivalence pt and therefore, pka. a question asks why we didnt experimentally derive a strong base/strong acid (HCl).... more

Fe3+ is yellow, SCN- is colourless, and the [FeSCN]2+ is a very deep blood red. How is it red?!

I don't get how it's red if one's yellow and the other is colorless. How does it turn red?

When HCl is added to a cobalt/cobalt chloride solution, it turns from pink to blue-violet, why?

Where does LeChatelier's principle say the shift happens? Would it be towards the right because: [Co(h2o6)2+ + 4Cl- <=> [CoCl4]2- + 6H2O. And since Cocl4 is blue, the solution turning that... more

Using LeChatelier's principle, why doesn't BiCl3 dissolve with water?

In class, we did a bunch of experiments to apply LeChatelier's principle. I get that the equilibrium wants to go towards the direction with the least effects of the stress, but how does this apply... more

How do I know if a solution is acidic, basic, or neutral?

I get by looking at pH's you can tell, but given just the compound say LiNO2, LiNO3, KCN, NaClO, how do I know that KCN has the highest PH and is most basic? Is this based on the periodic table? It... more
