Ka and Kb values

Postby Tara 1F » Sun Jul 30, 2017 7:32 pm

Do we need to learn the Ka and Kb value of common acids and bases or do you think they'll be given ?

They should be given. If not then the problem will contain enough information to solve for them.

Correct, as I mentioned in class all constants are given, unless there is information in the problem to calculate Ka or Kb.
