Calculating KA

Postby nshahwan 1L » Fri Dec 06, 2019 12:59 pm

Will we ever have to calculate Ka for weak acids?? Or will they always be given? Also, should we know how to calculate pKa?(its simple but It sort of relates to if we have to calculate Ka in the first place or if it will be given)

For 14A we will not have to calculate the Ka for weak acids. We will learn that in 14B. I would know how to calculate the pKa of a weak acid when given Ka though assuming that it is given to us.
