Problem 110P

What is the pH of a solution formed by mixing 175.0 mL of 0.0880 M HI with 125.0 mL of 0.0570 M KOH?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Problem 110P :

Step 1:

Given :

Volume of HI = 175.0 mL

Molarity of HI = 0.0880 M

Volume of KOH = 125.0 mL

Molarity of KOH = 0.0570 M

pH of solution formed by mixing HI and KOH= ?

Here, HI is a strong acid and KOH is a strong base.

Let’s write the balanced chemical equation for it :

HI(aq) + KOH(aq) → KI + H2O

First, let’s find the number of moles of HI and KOH :

We have the molarity and volume of HI and KOH, using this we will calculate the number of moles using the molarity formula :

Molarity =

The formula for calculating the number of moles will be :

Number of moles = Molarity  Volume(in L)

Volume of HI and KOH is in mL, so let’s convert to L :

1 L = 1000 mL

Therefore, 175 mL HI in L will be :

= 175 mL

= 0.175 L

125 mL KOH in L will be :

= 125 mL

= 0.125 L

Hence, number of moles in HI is :

= 0.0880 M 0.175 L

= 0.0154 moles.

Number of moles in KOH is :

=  0.0570 M0.125 L

= 0.007125 moles.

Now, if we take the difference between [H3O] and [OH] :

= 0.0154 - 0.007125

= 0.008275 moles

This tells that there are more [H+] ions in solution. Hence,  it is a acidic solution and there are 0.008275 moles excess in the solution
