This video is about Acid – Base Equilibria and explains in details the method of calculating the percent dissociation of weak acids in water using the equilibrium reaction and the acid dissociation equilibrium constant Ka. This topic also discuss the effect of a common ion on the dissociation of weak acids in water.
After watching this video you will be able to:
- Describe the effect of common ions on the percent ionization of weak acids and bases.
- Determine the pH of the solution made from the weak acid / weak base in the presence of the common ion.
