So the way this technique works is that it will work with ranges.

**What is the pH of 10% acetic acid?**

pH 4, acidic. Flash Point: N/A.

### What is the approximate pKa value of an alkyne?

Exercises. a) Yes – alkenes have pKa values of ~35 while alkynes have pKa values of ~25. This means that alkynes are more acidic and more likely to donate a proton.

**What is pKa of acetic acid?**

The pKa of acetic acid is 4.76. Acetic acid is a moderately weak acid; it dissociates partly when dissolved in water. Page 3. Each pKa unit represents a 10-fold difference in acidity or basicity. The weaker an acid, the stronger is its conjugate base; the stronger an acid, the weaker is its conjugate base.

#### How do you convert pKa to pH?

Each dissociation has a unique Ka and pKa value. When the moles of base added equals half the total moles of acid, the weak acid and its conjugate base are in equal amounts. The ratio of CB / WA = 1 and according to the HH equation, pH = pKa + log(1) or pH = pKa.

**What is the pH of a 0.150 M solution of acetic acid pKa 4.75 at 25 C?**

The pH is roughly 8.96.

## What is the pH of 5% acetic acid?

Most commercial vinegars contain 5% acetic acid which gives them a pH of 2.4, but specialty vinegars can be higher or lower.

**What is the pKa of acetic acid?**
