Re: When to ignore the second (de)protonization?

You can ignore the Ka2 and Ka3 when they are much smaller in comparison the Ka1 and will no longer have an effect on the pH.

Re: Difference in PH between strong and weak acids

Remember that having a higher pH value means that it is not very acidic since it is closer to neutral pH = 7. Because of this, weaker acids have higher pHs because they are deprotonating less. Strong acids disassociate 100%, but since weak acids do not, their pH tends to be higher.

Although adding an inert gas affects the total volume of the reaction, they do not interact with anything, thus causing there to be no change in concentration.

You do not have to create an ice table. I find that if they give you the equilibrium concentrations of the product(s) and all of the reactants except for the one they are asking about and vice versa, you should set up K and solve for the concentration for you are trying to find.
