# Question #d77d9

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

I will you assume you mean 20 ml and not 20 L. That would be a ridiculous volume for a titration.

Let the general equation be:

This tells us that 1 mole of HX produces 1 mole of XY.

The number of moles of HX is given by:

This is the number of moles of XY at the equivalence point.

XY is the salt of a weak acid and a strong base. The solution formed will not be neutral because the

By setting up an ICE table you can obtain a useful expression to get the pOH and hence the pH:

Where **b** is the concentration of the base i.e

Note that the total volume after the titration = 20 ml + 20 ml = 40 ml

To get

We know that:

We would expect a result like this as the solution should be alkaline.
