## Homework Statement

0.6 moles of pure acetic acid (no salt) is added to water. How much NaOH would have to be added to get the solution to maximum buffering capacity?

## Homework Equations

pH=pka + log [base]/[acid[

## The Attempt at a Solution

HAc <---> H+ + Ac-

0.6 mol of H+

0.6 mol of Ac-

All that I know is that if NaOH is added, it will reduce the H+ concentration, making the solution less acidic. I am having problems with the calculations. Thanks in advance.
