    Analytical pH help

    I have a really bad analytical teacher in college. She posted a quiz up that we haven't covered any of the material. I find analytical chem challenging I need resources or walkthroughs on these questions. Question 1:Sodium acetate is a weak base. Find the pH of 0.078 M sodium acetate solution...

    FTIR for fabric

    Hi all, I am not a chemist but I have great interest in learning new analytic techniques and am a curious soul. I want to find out if it is possible to remove all formulation from a wet cloth so I get a dried fabric that I can perform FTIR on to find out the blend. I know that the formulation...

    Stuck on Analytical Chemistry Problem

    Hi all, I'm stuck. Here's the question. Calculate the electrode potential of a platinum electrode immersed in a solution that is, .075 M in Fe2(SO4)3 and .06 M in FeSO4? It seems to me this is a cell where Fe2+ gets oxidized to Fe3+ and Sulfate gets reduced to H2SO3. Thus, anode...
