how to prepare an acetic acid-sodium acetate buffer of pH=5 but whose ionic strength is 0.1 from 0.1M acetic acid-sodium acetate buffer of pH=5?

  • I am known to be occasionally wrong.

What do you know about ionic strength and pKa values?

On acetic acid-sodium acetate, there are CH3COO-,CH3+, Na+,H+ ions

0.1=1/2 [(C(+1)^2+C(-1)^2+C(+1)^2+C(-1)^2 )]
0.1=2C
C=0.05 mol dm^(-3)
CV=K
0.1mol dm^(-3)×V1=0.05 mol dm^(-3)×V2
V2/V1 =2
Make 0.05M Acetic acid/Sodium acetate buffer by taking a specific volume of the buffer and diluting buffer 2 times to achieve 0.05M.
Is this correct way of preparing an acetic acid-sodium acetate buffer of the same pH and I=0.1?

For electrolyte of type 1:1 (sodium acetate) good approximation for I is c(sodium acetate). The acetic acid in this solution dissociates much less than 1 %.
What does mean CH3 ?

There is no such thing as a CH33 ion in an acetate buffer.

OMG sorry there is no CH3 lol
only CH3COO-, Na+,H+ ions exists

0.1=1/2 [(C(+1)^2+C(-1)^2+C(+1)^2]
0.1=3C
C=0.034 mol dm^(-3)
CV=K
0.1mol dm^(-3)×V1=0.034 mol dm^(-3)×V2
V2/V1 =2.94
Make 0.05M Acetic acid/Sodium acetate buffer by taking a specific volume of the buffer and diluting buffer 2.94 times to achieve 0.034M.

There is something wrong with this statement. Buffer with I=0.1 will contain ~0.1 M sodium acetate.
0.1M acetic acid-sodium acetate buffer of pH=5 shows ionic strength ~0.06 to 0.07. To change its ionic strength to 0.1 not changing pH you should add both sodium acetate and acetic and calculations will be quite difficult.

Sometimes an electrolyte is added to increase the ionic strength.  Sodium chloride would be one possibility.

But then pH will change slightly (~0.02 ?)

AWK,

Are you referring to the change in pKa due to change in ionic strength?  If so, then I agree that pH will change.

Can someone please show me how do calculate it? I never done it! At least give me a link to how to solve this problem!

In the second post of this thread Borek gave you link to his lecture on buffers.
Read this chapter carefully.
