Problem: Paracresol (C7H8OH) has a Ka = 5.5 x 10-11. If 100.0 mL of a 0.5000 M aqueous paracresol solution is mixed with 100.0 mL of 0.5000 M aqueous sodium hydroxide, the resulting solution will have a pH

FREE Expert Solution

We are asked to estimate what would happen to the solution of 0.5000 M aqueous paracresol solution if it is mixed with 100.0 mL of 0.5000 M aqueous sodium hydroxide.


Paracresol (C7H8OH) is a weak acid.

Sodium hydroxide (NaOH) is  strong base.

This means that we have a titration.
