Let us consider a mixture containing 200 ml 0.1 M HCl and 500 ml 0.2 M H2SO4.Since both are strong electrolytes,
200 × 0.1×10–3 0.02 mole
= 0.02 mole
500 × 0.2 × 10–3 2 × 0.1 mole
= 0.1 mole
Let us consider a mixture of strong acid(HA) and a weak acid (HX) of concentration C1 and C2 respectively.
Now, for strong acid
For weak acid,
Dissociation constant of weak acid,
Considering [HS–] dissociates to a very small extent
Acids giving more than one hydrogen ion per molecule are ‘polybasic’ or ‘polyprotic’ acids.
Examples are H2C2O4, H2CO3, H2S, H3PO4, H3AsO4, etc.
These dissociate in stages . For example,
Normally K2 << K1.To calculate hydrogen ion concentration, only the first step should be consideredas the H+ obtained from successive dissociation can be neglected, but to calculate the concentration of
then both the equilibria have to be considered.Dissociation of polybasic acids
Let HA and HB are two weak acids.
Dividing (1) by (2)
A solution is prepared by mixing 0.2MHCOOH with 0.5 M CH3 COOH.

Now, to calculate the pH
Calculate the pH at the equivalence point of the titration between 0.1 M CH3COOH (50 ml) with 0.05 M NaOH . Ka(CH3COOH) = 1.8 × 10–5.
At the equivalence point,
Let V ml NaOH is required to reach the equivalence point.
At the equivalence point,
V = 100 ml
Calculate the percentage hydrolysis of decinormal solution of ammonium acetate, given Ka = 1.75 × 10–5, Kb = 1.80 × 10–5and Kw = 1 × 10–14. What will be the change in degree of hydrolysis when 2 L of water is added to 1 L of the above solution?
Since CH3COONH4 is a salt of weak acid and weak base
Since degree of hydrolysis is not affected by the concentration in this case. So on dilution there will be no change in degree of hydrolysis.

Calcium lactate is a salt of a weak organic acid and represented as Ca(Lac)2. A saturated solution of Ca (Lac)2 contains 0.13 mol of this salt in 0.50 litre solution. The pOH of this solution is 5.60. Assuming a complete dissociation of the salt, calculate Ka of lactic acid.

H2X being a diprotic acid,
Due to the ‘common ion effect’ dissociation of HX–will be less.
