Let the degree of ionization of propionic acid be α.
Then, representing propionic acid as HA, we have
In the presence of 0.1M of HCl, let be the degree of ionization
Q: 60. The pH of 0.1M solution of cyanic acid (HCNO) is 2.34. Calculate the ionization constant of the acid and its degree of ionization in the solution.
Q: 61. The ionization constant of nitrous acid is. Calculate the pH of 0.04 M sodium nitrite solution and also its degree of hydrolysis.
is the salt of a strong base (NaOH) and a weak acid
Now, if x moles of the salt undergo hydrolysis, then the concentration of various species Present in the solution will be
Therefore, degree of hydrolysis
