What is the pH of 0.100 M citric acid?

Text 692019 and your message to 37607


What are you thinking…?

  • I am thinking absolutely nothing.

  • I am waiting for you to tell me what to think.

  • I’m thinking it must be equilibrium because that’s all we talk about.

  • I’m thinking it must be equilibrium because it is asking about the pH

What is the pH of 0.100 M citric acid?

Citric acid is H3C6H5O7

Now, I’m thinking…

  • Must be an acid

  • Must be diprotic

  • Must be triprotic

  • Must be a strong acid

  • Must be a weak acid

What is the pH of 0.100 M citric acid?

Ka1=7.1x10-4

Ka2=1.7x10-5

Ka3=4.1x10-7

Now, I’m thinking:

  • Must be a weak acid

  • Must be a strong acid

  • Must be a triprotic weak acid

  • I don’t get paid to think, you do.

What is the pH of 0.100 M citric acid?

Ka1=7.1x10-4

Ka2=1.7x10-5

Ka3=4.1x10-7

Now, I’m thinking:

  • 3 parts

  • 2 parts

    D. I’ve had about enough of your nonsense.

What is the pH of 0.100 M citric acid?

Ka1=7.1x10-4

Ka2=1.7x10-5

Ka3=4.1x10-7

H3C6H5O7 (aq) + H2O (l) ↔ H3O+ (aq) + H2C6H5O7- (aq)

H2C6H5O7- (aq) + H2O (l) ↔ H3O+ (aq) + HC6H5O72- (aq)

HC6H5O72- (aq) + H2O (l) ↔ H3O+ (aq) + C6H5O73- (aq)

Take them one at a time…or do I?

Always try the assumption, we only have 30 seconds to lose.

Assume x<<0.100

Text 692019 and your message to 37607


Check

close but no cigar

Assume x<<0.00808

Check

YAY! It works.

Let’s take a moment for some deep reflection….

Did anything change during the second equilibrium?

Yes, EVERYTHING changed.

No, NOTHING changed.

Some things changed, some things didn’t

What are these “things” of which you speak?

Text 692019 and your message to 37607


Nothing changed…

…to 2 sig figs.

Which is a good thing! If it had changed, I would upset the first equilibrium!

Text 692019 and your message to 37607


First equilibrium

Text 692019 and your message to 37607


Second equilibrium

They BOTH have to be satisfied if I’m truly at equilibrium.

Let’s pretend this second equilibrium turned out differently…

Text 692019 and your message to 37607


Imaginary second equilibrium

Now, look back at the first equilibrium…two of these compounds are the same!

Text 692019 and your message to 37607


Imaginary first equilibrium

It can’t be at equilibrium anymore.

The assumption that I can treat the equilibria separately relies on them not undoing each other. The bigger the K difference, the better. Otherwise, you have to solve both K’s simultaneously rather than consecutively.
