Relationship between pKa & pH

Postby Kelly Cai 4D » Mon Dec 02, 2019 3:44 pm

In lecture, we discussed how the acid would be negatively charged if the pH is greater than the pKa as the acid is more likely to give off a proton in this alkaline environment. If the pH and pKa were equal, does this mean the acid would be neutral?

When pH = pKa, the amount of conjugate acid and conjugate base are equal.
