a. pH = -log10[H+] = -log(0.15) = 0.824
b. Moles of acid = 0.5 L x 0.15 mol/
L = 0.075 mol
c. 125 mL NaOH solution added, i.e. 0.125 L x 0.30 mol L-1 =
0.0375 mol NaOH; this reacts quantitatively with the HCl, which is in excess
(A), but now there are 0.5L + 0.125 L of volume; so [H+] will diminish and pH
increase.
d. We need to add 0.075 mol NaOH to neutralize the starting
solution 0.075 mol/0.3 mol L-1=0.25 L
e. At equivalence we have a solution
that is stoichiometric in NaCl, the salt of a strong base and strong acid. The
pH 7
f.NaOH added is 0.375 L x 0.3 mol L-1 = 0.1125 mol NaOH; 0.075 mol of
this reacts with the HCl; so 0.1125 - 0.075=0.0375 mol NaOH in excess. pOH (
-log10[OH-]) and pH = 14 - pOH=14-1.43=12.57
