Henderson Hasselbalch Equation

Postby Jose Robles 1D » Sun Jan 19, 2020 7:09 pm

Can someone elaborate on what this equation is and how it can be utilized in class? I remember someone mentioning it in lecture and was not familiar with it.

I am fairly certain that we will not be using that equation in this class, and if we do, I'm sure Dr. Lavelle will explain/derive it in lecture. I have never heard of that equation until it was mentioned by a student in class.

Dr. Lavelle said that we won’t be using the equation in 14b so I don’t think you need to worry about it!

The Henderson Hasselbalch Equation is an equation that uses the pKa and concentration of weak acid & conjugate base to quickly determine the pH, without having to go through the ICE table and quadratics.
