    Dissociation of weak acids

    Hello, As a dietitian, I was taught during my training that weak acids never dissociate all at the same time, and that at any given point in time, some of it remains in acide form while the rest is deprotonized. Could anyone confirm that this is the case? Especially for lactic acid/lactate...

    pH for this Weak Acid-Strong Base titration

    What is the pH when 10 ml of 0.1 M NaOH is added to 25 ml of 0.1 M HC2H3O2? The main thing confusing me about this type of problem is that my teacher taught me a way which is different from the methods I see online. And I get a different answer. This is how I was taught to do it: moles of...

    Calculate pH of WEAK acid given ONLY molarity?

    Is it possible to calculate the pH of a weak acid if you're only given the molarity? For example, "Calculate the pH of a 0.1 M solution of methylamine. Explain why it is different then the pH of a 0.1 M solution NaOH." Obviously, finding the pH of a strong acid/base is pretty straightforward...

    Properties of Weak Bases

    I'm so confused about this! My textbook seems to be contradicting itself. First it says that the conjugate bases of strong acids are weak bases, and vice versa, but then it says that some example of weak bases include the anions of WEAK acids. That doesn't make sense. Help!
