It has been found that the pH of a 0.01M solution of an organic acid is 4.15. Calculate the concentration of the anion, the ionization constant of the acid and its pKa.

##### Solution :-

HA  ⇌  H+ +  A

pH = -log[H+]

log[H+] = -4.15

$$[H^{+}] = 7.08\times 10^{-5}M\, [A^{–}]$$

$$= 7.08\times 10^{-5}K_a=\dfrac{[H^{+}][A^{-}]}{[HA]}$$

$$[H^{+}] =\dfrac{(7.08\times 10^{-5})(7.08\times 10^{-5})}{10^{-2}}$$

$$=5.0\times 10^{-7}\\ \\$$

$$p_{K_{a}}=-log\, K_{a}$$

$$= -log\, (5.0\times 10^{-7})$$

$$=7-0.699=6.301$$
