calculate the degree of hydrolysis of an N/10 KCN solution at 25degree celsius.Ka(HCN)=0.00000000072;Kw=0.00000000000001

Expert Answer:

Solution:

As KCN is a salt of strong base and weak acid,

Hydrolysis constant, Kh = Kw/Ka  = 10-14          = 1.3 × 10-5

                                                  7.2 ×10-10

Degree of hydrolysis, h = =1.14 ×10-2
