Solutions which contain a weak acid adn its conjugate base are called __. Why?
- buffer solutions
- they resist drastic changes in pH
If a small amount of OH- is added to a buffer solution, what happens?
the pH increases, but not by much because the acid component of the buffers olutioni neutralizes the added OH-;same for acids except the pH will go down

it tells us how the pH affects the % dissociation of a weak acid
What else does the Hasselbalch equation tell us?
how to prepare a buffer soluton with a given pH. the general idea is to select a weak acid whose pKa is close to the desired pH and adjust the [conj. base]/[acid] ratio to the value specified by the HH equation
The pH of a buffer solution does not depend on what?
- the volume fo teh solution because a change in solution volume changes the concentration of the acid adn base by the same amount

Difference between titration curve of strong-strong and strong base-weak acid

The equilibrium equation for hte dissolution reaction is __, where the equilibrium constant __ is called the __, or simply the __. As usual for a heterogeneous equilibrium, the __ is omitted.
- Ksp= [M^n+]^m [X^y]^x
- solubility product constant
- solubility product
- the concentration of hte solid
What does the Ksp always equal
the proudct of hte equilibrium concentrations fo all the ions on the right side of the chemical equation, witht eh concentrations of each ion raised to the power of its coefficient in the balanced equation
The value of Ksp is unaffected by __.
the presence of other ions in solution, such as Na+ from NaF and Cl- from CaCl2, as long as the solution is very dilute
As ion concentrations increase, what happens with Ksp values?
they are somewhat modified because of electrostatic interactions between ions
If hte saturated solution is prepared by a method other than the dissolution of CaF2 in pure water, there are no what?
separate restrictions on Ca2+ and F-; the only restriction on the ion concentrations ins that the value fo the equilibrium constant expression Ca2+ x F-^2 must equal the Ksp
Once Ksp is measured, you can do uaht?
use it to calculate the solubility of the compound--the amount of the compound that dissolves per unit volume of saturated solution
What are the two complications in calculting solubilities?
- first: Ksp values are difficult to measure and values listed in different sources might differ by as much as a factor of ten or more
- second: calculated solubilites can be less than observed solubilities because of wide reactions
When MgF2 dissolves in a solution that contains a common ion from another source--say F= from NaF-- the position of the solubility equilibrium is __
shifted to the left by the common ion effect
A smaller value of Mg2+ means that MgF2 is what
less soluble in a sodium fluoride solution than it is in pure water
An ionic compound that contains a basic anion becomes what?
more soluble as the acidity of the solution increases
The solubility of CaCO3 what?
increases with decreasing pH becasuse the CO32- cions ocmbine with protons to give HCO3- ions

ion that contains a metal cation bonded to one or more small molecules or ions

The answer of whether something is soluble depends on the value of the __, a number defined by the expression __.
- IP (ion product)
- IP= [Ca2+]t[F-]t^2
The IP is defined as what?
the same as Ksp, except that the concentrations in the expression for IP are initial concentrations, not equilibrium
Thus, the IP is actually a __, but the term __ is more descriptive because, as usual, solid CAF2 is omitted
- reaction quotient
- ion prdouct
IP >ksp ?
supersaturated and precipitation will occur
IP = Ksp
solution is saturated/ equilibrium exists
IP < Ksp:
solution is unsaturated and precipitation will not occur
A conveninet method for separating a mix of ions is __
to add a solution that will precipitate some of the ions but not others
What does separation depend on
adjusting the H3O+ concentration so the reaction quotient Qc exceeds Kspa for hte very insoluble sulfides but not for the more soluble ones
Why do we use Kspa for metal sulfides rather than Ksp
- 1) the ion separations are carried out in acidic solution (so its more convenient)
- 2) the value of Ka2 is very small, is highly basic, and is not an important species
