Chemistry Level 2

Find the pH of a $$0.1 \text{ M}$$ solution of sodium acetate, to the nearest hundredth.

Details and Assumptions:

• For acetic acid, $$K_a = 1.77 \times 10^{-5}$$
• For water, $$K_w = 10^{-14}.$$
• The only chemicals present in the solution are water and sodium acetate.
• Of course, you may use a calculator at any time.
