2. Calculate the pH of a 0.0100 M HNO3(aq) solution.

3. HCOOH(aq) is a weak acid. What does the term 'weak acid' mean you?

4. Complete the table below given a 0.675 M HCOOH solution.





5. Given that Ka for HCOOH is 1.82 x 10-4, calculate the pH of the solution.

6. Is there anything about the questions that you feel you do not understand? List your concerns/questions.
