Transcript of Revision S7

So we have:
pH of....
What is the pH of a two molar solution of ammonia....?
What is the Kz of its conjucate base...
Remember .... Kw of water...
or pH + POH = 14
Thank you!
Water Constant
Chatelier principle
So why is a solution of ammonia ... a basic solution.... When there is also the ammonium ion as the cojugate acid of the base... it is all about the base ...? or its opposite conjugate acid...
Lets have a look

pH + pOH = 14

in a table... Kz of pKz or pH and strength of solution
The ammonium cation is a positively charged ion with the chemical formula NH4+ It is formed by the protonation of ammonia (NH3).
Question what is the pH of a 2 molar solution of ammonia...
First write down the equation
Need of a constant of what ... Cb or Ca
Table of Ca and or Cb
Think which one is a larger number and think about a equilibrium which one is the largest number and which one will make a mark...?
Remember ... pH is an approximation within WATER ....we can't calculate all... ions involved...

The ammonium ion is generated when ammonia, a weak base, reacts with Brønsted acids (proton donors):
H+ + NH3 → NH4+
The ammonium ion is mildly acidic, reacting with Brønsted bases to return to the uncharged ammonia molecule:
NH4+ + B− → HB + NH3
Thus, treatment of concentrated solutions of ammonium salts with strong base gives ammonia. When ammonia is dissolved in water, a tiny amount of it converts to ammonium ions:
H2O + NH3 is in equilibrium with OH- + NH4+
The degree to which ammonia forms the ammonium ion depends on the pH of the solution. If the pH is low, the equilibrium shifts to the right: more ammonia molecules are converted into ammonium ions. If the pH is high (the concentration of hydrogen ions is low), the equilibrium shifts to the left: the hydroxide ion abstracts a proton from the ammonium ion, generating ammonia.

Kb =
Kb = 1,8 x 10 Because
= 2.0/1.8 X 10
= 1,1 X 10
= 10
and therefore we can state that the [NH ] is negligible in respect of the [NH ]
So we can say that the ammonia concentration is approximately the same as the original concentration of NH we added = 2.0 M
So fill this into your Kb equation .....
Kb =
products x products
this will give the OH- concentration [ OH-]
-log = pOH
pOH - 14 = pH.......?
