midterm q3d

Postby WGaines_2E » Mon Mar 09, 2020 9:37 pm

At pH 6 what is the net charge for acetic acid CH3COOH (pKa = 4.75)?

How do you find charge from these given values? My only guess was to subtract the two but I know its not that easy

Since the pka is lower than the ph given, the acetic acid will act as an acid and will partially dissociate into H3o+ and CH3COO^-. Therefore, its net charge is -1.
