    100 mL 0.1 M sodium acetate solution is mixed with 50 mL 0.1 M acetic acid. If now 0.914 mL of 1 M sodium hydroxide is added to the buffer what is the change in pH? pKa (acetic acid) = 4.76.

    You need to work out the pH before and the pH, subtract and that's the 'change in pH'.

    Remember that its the pKa value, therefore you have to use the equation:

    pH = pKa - log ([HA] / [A-])

    Where HA is the acetic acid and A- is the OH- ion

    CheeseIsVeg this is right, right? :lol:
