Acids/Bases and Chemical Equilibrium

Postby ashwathinair » Sun Jan 19, 2020 4:20 pm

I understand the steps to do chemical equilibrium problems for chemical equations that aren't acids and bases; in general, what is added to the basic framework of solving regular chemical equilibrium reactions when trying to find chemical equilibria (and related pH/pOH) for acid base reactions?

A lot of it is the same. However, there will be a lot of working backwards (ex. using a Kb to find Ka for acid dissociation). Otherwise, most of the steps are essentially the same. If anything, you will have to write out the reaction yourself, requiring knowledge of common acids and bases and their respective conjugates.

Acids/Bases usually require a lot of ICE tables since weak acids/bases don't dissociate completely
