🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Dunning's class at TEXAS.
Remember that HClO3 is a strong, monoprotic oxyacid. It’s a strong oxyacid since there are 2 more O than H in the formula.
Recall that strong acids completely dissociate in water and that acids donate H+ to the base (water in this case). The dissociation of HClO4 is as follows:
HClO3(aq) + H2O(l) → H3O+(aq) + ClO3–(aq)
What is the pH of 252.185 mL of a 3.52 x 10 -4 M HClO3 solution?
E. the pH can't be calculated without the value of K a
