The question is:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

calculate the pH after 10.0 mL of 0.4 M NaOH is added to 20.0 mL of 0.5 M CH3COOH (Ka CH3COOH = 1.8 x 10^-5)

I'm thinking that if I find the Kb of NaOH, then I can find how much of OH and H will be produced. I can then subtract the concentrations and find the pH or something. But how do I take into account the fact that CH3COONa is a basic salt and how to I find the Kb or NaOH?

Or in short, How would I go about the question?

Thank you!
