    I don't know if this is right but I had a go.

    Ka= 1.74*10-5
    Conc= 0.1 M

    1.74*10-5 = (H+) / (HA) = 0.1 mol dm-3

    (H+)= 1.319090569*10-3

    10- 1.31..... = ph 0.996

    Please can you help me.

    Seems unlikely. There's likely a missing C.

    Yeah, I think I remember the Ka of ethanoic acid is about 1.8*10-5 too.

    Yeah that's the name of CH3OOH. You've got the formula wrong, you mean CH3COOH.
