Note Set #3 – week 5 Analytical Chemistry SOLUTIONS OF INTERMEDIATE SPECIES of DIPROTIC SYSTEMS + 2- - o Charge balance eqn.  [H ] + [H A] = [A 2 + [OH ] - 2- o Mass Balance  F = [H A] + [HA2] + [A ] - + 2- o HA  H + A (deprotonation of intermediate) o HA + H O 2H A + OH 2 - (protonation of intermediate) TITRATION o Titration of a Strong Acid with a Weak Base o e.g.) HI + KOH  H O + 2I *goes to completion* 1. Before equivalence point: pH is dependent on excess, unreacted/un-neutralized H+ 2. At equivalence point: pH = 7.00; [H+] is equivalent to [OH-] 3. After equivalence point: pH is dependent on excess, unreacted/un-neutralized OH- Useful eqn.: C V1= 1 V 2 2 o Titration of a Weak Acid with a Strong Base o e.g.) HF + KOH  H O + K2 ????2 + - 1. Before No base added, treat as a weak acid problem. K = a ????−???? , x = [H ] = [A ] 2. Before Some base added, pH = pK + log ([A a/[HA]). Moles HA = Moles HA – i Moles OH added. Moles A = Moles A + Moles OH added. Make sure to convert units back to molar concentrations (if you have to). 3. At All weak acid converted to weak base, treat as weak base problem. K = b ????2 K wK a , where F is the new concentration of [A ], and x= [OH ]. - ????−???? 4. Post-equivalence: pH dependent on excess, unreacted/un-neutralized OH- *When titrating Weak Base with Strong Acid, simply work from all weak base to begin with, and end with all of it converting to weak acid.* POLYPOTIC TITRATIONS Titration of Weak diprotic acid, with Strong Base o Points to recognize  At beginning: no base added, treat H A as a2weak monoprotic acid if K = K a 1  Before equivalence pt. 1 (V ): pe1= pK + log a1HA ]/[H A]). Calc2late concentrations based on how much strong base added. Note Set #3 – week 5 Analytical Chemistry - 2-  At ½ V  e1 = pK , [H A] a1[HA 2, and [A ] is virtually 0.  At V e1H = ½ (pK + pK ), a1l speca2s are in intermediate form 2- -  Between Eq.pts. 1 and 2: pH = pK a2 + log ([A ]/[HA ]) 2- -  At ½ V  e2 = pK , [A ] =a2HA ], and [H A] is virtua2ly 0.  At V  all is in fully deprotonated form A . Treat as weak base problem, as e2 if Kb= K b1.
