Acetic Acid, HC2H3O2, is a weak acid that dissociates according to this equation:
In this experiment, you will experimentally determine the dissociation constant, Ka, for acetic acid, starting with solutions of different initial concentrations.
In this experiment, you will
- Gain experience mixing solutions of specified concentration.
- Experimentally determine the dissociation constant, Ka, of an acid.
- Investigate the effect of initial solution concentration on the equilibrium constant.
