9) A solution is prepared by dissolving 0.23 mol of hydrofluoric acid and 0.27 mol of sodium fluoride in water sufficient to yield 1.00 L of solution. The addition of 0.05 mol of HCl to this buffer solution causes the pH to drop slightly. The pH does not decrease drastically because the HCl reacts with the __________ present in the buffer solution. The Ka of hydrofluoric acid is 1.36 × 10-3.

A) H2O

B) H3O+

C) fluoride ion

D) hydrofluoric acid

E) This is a buffer solution: the pH does not change upon addition of acid or base.

10) A solution is prepared by dissolving 0.23 mol of hydrazoic acid and 0.27 mol of sodium azide in water sufficient to yield 1.00 L of solution. The addition of 0.05 mol of NaOH to this buffer solution causes the pH to increase slightly. The pH does not increase drastically because the NaOH reacts with the __________ present in the buffer solution. The Ka of hydrazoic acid is 1.9 × 10-5.

A) H2O

B) H3O+

C) azide

D) hydrazoic acid

E) This is a buffer solution: the pH does not change upon addition of acid or base.
