for acids
for a weak monoprotic acid is the ratio
[tex]\frac{[A^-]}{[HA]} [/tex]
always equal to 1?

edit: never mind. answered my own dumb question.

No. it will be much less than 1, referring to the equilibrium constant K. However, at some times, "weak" refers to a significantly strong acid and thus it may apply.
