1. Ka=[H+]×[F-]/[HF]

6.8*10-4=x*x/0.34-x from this eqution :

x2+6.8*10-4 - 2.312*10-4

x=0.0155 M ,

pH= -log [H+]=-log (0.0155)=1.8

2. BOH=B++OH-

pOH=14-9.5=4.5

[OH-]=10-pOH=10-4.5=3.162*10-5M

equlibrium concentration(BOH)=0.3--3.162*10-5 =0.29996838M

Kb=[B+]×[OH-]/[BOH]=3.162*10-5 ×3.162*10-5/0.29996838=1*10-9

3.HA<-> H++A-

0.325 0 0

-x +x +x

0.325-x x x

Ka=[H+]*[A-]/[HA]

1.8*10-5=x*x/0.325-x

So x=0.00242M[H+] ,pH=-log [H+]=

-log(0.00242)=2.616

4.HA<-> H++A-

0.056 0 0

0.056-x +x +x

1.4*10-5=x*x/0.056

So x=0.0008854M

pH=-log[0.0008854]=3.05

5.

1.8*10-4=x*x/0.075

So x=0.003674M

pH=-log [0.003674]=2.4348

6.

1.8*10-5=x*x/0.15

So x=0.001643M

pH=-log [0.001643]=2.7843

7.

4.4*10-4=x*x/0.6

So x=0.016248M

pH=-log[0.016248]=1.7891

8.

pH=4.2

[H+]=10-pH=10-4.2=6.3*10-5M

HA <--> H+ + A-

6.3*10-5 6.3*10-5 6.3*10-5

x-6.3*10-5 +x +x

1.34*10-5=6.3*10-5*6.3*10-5/x-6.3*10-5

So x=0.0066M (HA)
