Can someone please help me answer these questions? Is additional information other than what is given needed to solve? Thanks in advance.

1) Calculate the PH of a buffer containing 0.100 M propanoic acid, HC3H5O2 and .100 M NaC3H502 after the following have been added. Ka for acetic acid is 1.3 x 10^-5.
a. 10.0 mL of 2.0 M HCl (assume no volume change occurs when acid is added)
b. 10.0 mL of 2.0 M NaOH (assume no volume change occurs when base is added)

2) A hydrofluoric acid buffer solution has the following concentrations: [HF] = .18M, [F-]= .51M. If 35mL of .15M NaOH is added to 354 mL of the buffer, what is the resultant pH?

  1. #1 has no volume.
    #2.
    millimols HF = 354 mL x 0.18 = about 64
    mmols F^- = 354 mL x 0.51 = about 180
    added NaOH = 35 mL x 0.15 = about 5

    .........HF + OH^- ==> F^- + H2O
    I........64....0.......180
    add............5..............
    C.......-5....-5.........+5
    E.......59.....0.......185

    Substitute into HH equation and solve for pH. NOTE: My "abouts" are estimates. You need to redo each more accurately.
