Question details

Hypochlorous acid (HOCL) is commonly used as a disinfectant. If 5.25 mL of a 10 g/L solution of HOCL is diluted to a total volume of 1 L using distilled water, what is the resuting pH? pKa of HOCL is 7.53. The temperature is at 25C. Atomic number of H, O, and Cl is: 1, 16, and 35.5 respectively. (Hint: You may assume that OH- in the solution is much smaller than H+ in your calculation).
