; If we let x = [H+] = (Ac"] and note from the mass balance on acetic acid that [HAc] = ? 0.01 - x,wp can substitute into the equilibrium relationship for acetic acid: : . ■

' Multiplying through and rearranging terms yields js2 + 1.8 X 10"sx — 1.8 X 10~7 = 0 V

This equation can be solved using the quadratic formula: i

Thus, [H+] = 4.15 X 10~", or pH = 3.38. This is the same answer pbtained in'Example . ! 4 2 when simplifying assumptions were not used

;: It is clear that since pH =,3.38, our assumption that [H1] is much greater than [QHr] is a good one The second assumption that [HAc] is greater than [Ac-] is also a good one :'since [Ac-] = 4:14 X 10"4. From the mass balance on acetic acid: . ■■ "v:;;..^j*'J
