Concentration of HCN and NaCN in a solution is 0.01M each.Calculate [H30+]& [OH-].Ka(HCN)=0.00000000072

Expert Answer:

(i)  HCN    H+   +   CN-

(0.01 - X)M           XM         XM

(ii) NaCN   Na+ + CN-

Initial  0.01 M  0M  0M

Final   0.0M  0.01M  0.01M

So at equilibrium, [H+] = XM

[CN-]Total  =  [CN-]Acid  +  [CN-]Salt

= XM  +  0.01M  = 1.01M

[HCN] = 0.01M – XM = 0.01M

 

 

= -log[H+]  = log 7.2 X 10-10
