Textbook Section 6E

Postby Bailey Giovanoli 1L » Sun Jan 17, 2021 12:19 am

In section 6E.1 of the textbook, it states that you only take the first deprotonation into account when calculating pH. It hints that there are exceptions like sulfuric acid. What are the other exceptions? How do you identify them?

I think H2SO4 is an exception because its Ka2 = 1.0×10−2, which is close to other acids' Ka1, so it should not be ignored.
