Etching of glass is a slow process that can produce beautiful artwork. Traditionally, the glass has been treated with dilute hydrofluoric acid which gradually dissolves the glass under it. Parts of the piece that should not be etched are covered with wax or some other non-reactive material.

16.6: Weak Acids
Although this is more difficult than calculating the pH of a strong acid or base solution, most biochemically important acids and bases are considered weak, and so it is very useful to understand how to calculate the pH of these substances. The same basic method can be used to determine the pH of aqueous solutions of many different weak acids and bases. An aqueous solution of a weak acid or base contains both the protonated and unprotonated forms of the compound, so an ICE table can be made and used to plug in concentrations into an equilibrium constant expression. The ionization constant for the acid K a or base K b is a measure of how readily the acid donates protons or how readily a base accepts protons. Because you are calculating pH, you must solve for the unknown concentration of hydronium ions in solution at equilibrium. The first step in calculating the pH of an aqueous solution of any weak acid or base is to notice whether the initial concentration is high or low relative to 10 -7 M the concentration of hydronium and hydroxide ions in water due to the autoionization of water.
We can rank the strengths of acids by the extent to which they ionize in aqueous solution. The reaction of an acid with water is given by the general expression:. The relative strengths of acids may be determined by measuring their equilibrium constants in aqueous solutions. In solutions of the same concentration, stronger acids ionize to a greater extent, and so yield higher concentrations of hydronium ions than do weaker acids. The equilibrium constant for an acid is called the acid-ionization constant, K a.
Weak Acids and Bases
An acid or base's strength refers to its degree of ionization. A strong acid will completely ionize in water while a weak acid will only partially ionize. Since there are different degrees of ionization, there are different levels of weakness. Fortunately, there is a simple quantitative way of expressing this. Since the ionization of a weak acid is an equilibrium, a chemical equation and an equilibrium constant expression can be written:. The equilibrium constant for the ionization of an acid is called the acid ionization constant K a.
The relative strengths of some common acids and their conjugate bases are shown graphically in Figure Again, we do not include [H2O] in the equation because water is the solvent. Strong bases react with water to quantitatively form hydroxide ions. This table shows the changes and concentrations: As we begin solving for x, we will find this is more complicated than in previous examples. In solutions of the same concentration, stronger bases ionize to a greater extent, and so yield higher hydroxide ion concentrations than do weaker bases. We also acknowledge previous National Science Foundation support under grant numbers , , and
An acid dissociation constant , K a , also known as acidity constant , or acid-ionization constant is a quantitative measure of the strength of an acid in solution. It is the equilibrium constant for a chemical reaction. The dissociation constant is defined by [note 2]. The acid dissociation constant for an acid is a direct consequence of the underlying thermodynamics of the dissociation reaction; the p K a value is directly proportional to the standard Gibbs free energy change for the reaction. The value of p K a also depends on molecular structure of the acid in many ways.
