Acid, Bases and Buffers (Henderson Hasselbach)
« on: May 13, 2019, 03:52:45 AM »
Need help with a prac write up!
Q1. Buffer will be 100ml of 0.25 M Tris Buffer with a ph of 8.0 Write out the chemical equation for this buffer. Identify which species is the conjugate acid and conjugate base.

2. For this buffer, calculate the ratio of the base to acid using the Henderson-Hasselbach equation.


Not sure where to even begin to be honest! Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Start with your lecture notes, or the textbook, or google for any page explaining buffers, most of these questions are very basic.

What is Tris? have you checked it, tried to google?
Chembuddy chemical calculators - stoichiometry, pH, concentration, buffer preparation, titrations.info, pH-meter.info
