Mass of NaC2H3O2 used to prepare buffer (grams)| | |
Volume of buffer prepared (mL)| 100.0| 100.0|
Molar concentration of HC2H3O2 in buffer (M)| 0.1| 1.0|
Initial pH of buffer| | |
Volume of 0.5 M NaOH to raise pH by 2 units (mL)| | |
Volume of 0.5 M HCl to lower pH by 2 units (mL)| | |
Volume of 0.5 M NaOH at equivalence point (mL)| | |

Data Analysis
1. Write reaction equations to explain how your acetic acid-acetate buffer reacts with an acid and reacts with a base.

2. Buffer capacity has a rather loose definition, yet it is an important property of buffers. A commonly seen definition of buffer capacity is: “The amount of H+ or OH– that can be neutralized before the pH changes to a significant degree.” Use your data to determine the buffer capacity of Buffer A and Buffer B. (Graphically, we can identify buffer capacity by the sudden change to a very steep slope.)

3. Say, for example, that you had prepared a Buffer C, in which you mixed 8.203 g of sodium acetate, NaC2H3O2, with 100.0 mL of 1.0 M acetic acid.

a. What would be the initial pH of Buffer C?

b. If you add 5.0 mL of 0.5 M NaOH solution to 20.0 mL each of Buffer B and Buffer C, which buffer’s pH would change less? Explain.
