### Today's lecture

So as long as we are given the Ka or Kb value, we can find the pH or pOH?

I believe if you are given a pKa value you will have to use the concentration of H3O+ from that pKa equation to find the pH of the solution. Like if pKa=[H3O+][CH3COO-]/[CH3COOH]=2X10^-5 then you would have to know the other concentrations in the reaction to be able to find the concentration of H3O+ and thus the pH of the solution.

Wouldn't pKa give an integer thats less than 7?

pKa is dependent on Ka so if the Ka is greater than 10^-7, then the pKa would be less than 7 but if Ka is less than 10^-7, then the pKa would be greater than 7.

The Henderson-Hasselbalch equation states that . Use an ICE table to determine the concentrations of the conjugate acid-base pair.

This equation looks like it is very useful! Thanks!
