Determining an Acid Dissociation Constant from a Titration

Another application of acid–base titrimetry is the determination of equilibrium constants. Consider, for example, a solution of acetic acid, CH3COOH, for which the dissociation constant is Ka = [H3O+][CH3COO–]/[CH3COOH] When the concentrations of CH3COOH and CH3COO– are equal, the Ka expression reduces … Continue reading
