Finding ph from Ka

  1. Oct 7, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    ka= 5.293 x 10^-6

    using Ka, calculate the ph of a solution that contains equal concentrations of HB and B-.

    2. Relevant equations

    ph = -log[H+]

    3. The attempt at a solution

    im guessing that HB is the acid and B- is the base
