3. Consider the HCIolclo conjugate acidlbase pair. Consult your text or other source for appropriate acid dissociation constants. The hypochlorite ion is the active ingredient in bleach, NaCIO(aq) (a) Explain why this acid/base pair would be a candidate for a buffer with pH 7.3 (approximate physiological value). (b) Based on your advice in 3(a), a researcher used this very buffer in a growth medium (including appropriate food and temperature control) for bacteria that proliferate at physiological pH. Despite this carefully prepared medium, however, bacterial growth was dismal Explain
