Problem 12.63

Postby Andy Liao 1B » Mon Dec 04, 2017 8:01 pm

Problem:
12.63 The percentage deprotonation of benzoic acid in a 0.110 m solution is 2.4%. What is the pH of the solution and the Ka of benzoic acid?

I understand how to solve the problem. However, in the solutions manual, it says H2O + octylamine ⇌ octylamineH+ + OH-. What does this mean? Can someone please explain?

This means that octylamine acts as a base in this reaction, and its conjugate base is octylamineH+
