A student measures the pH of the contents in a bottle of Dettol® as 5.14.
The label on the bottle shows the percentage of chloroxylenol in Dettol® as 4.80%
i.e. 100cm3 of Dettol® contains 4.80g of chloroxylenol.
Assume the following:
• Chloroxylenol is the only acidic component in Dettol®.
• Chloroxylenol is a weak monobasic acid.
• The density of Dettol® is 1.00gcm−3.

Write the equation, using molecular formulae, for the acid dissociation of chloroxylenol.
Calculate the acid dissociation constant, Ka, for chloroxylenol.

hi please can someone help me with this? I'm so confused!

Were you given the molecular formula of chloroxylenol?

You're given the displayed formula, from that you can work out the molecular formula. Apply HA <-> H+ + A- to that.
