Question about acetate buffer

This is the long and computational answer to Debra's question about what happens when 100 mmol of HCl ispoured into an 100 ml acetate buffer (0.2 M)


Gases - the ideal gas law explained Chemical compounds in aqueous solutions are fairly easy to handle as their quantities can either be expressed in weight such as grams or kilos, moles perliter (molarity) or moles per kg (molality).Topic: pKa & Ka The basics ...

Acids and bases - Broensted-Lowry definition A more fundamental definition of acids and bases than the one provided on the index page was given by the Danish chemists Johannes Broensted.The definitions are:A Broensted acid is a proton doner.A Broensted base is a proton acceptor.The English chemist, Thomas Lowry, proposed exactly the same at roug...

An introduction to Ionic Strength BackgroundTo quantify the effect of inter-ionic interactions, such as molecular attraction and repelling, one has to have a `parameter` describing themagnitude of these forces and how they alter the way certain calculation are done.Topic: Equilibriums The pH s...
