CH3CO2H ⇋ CH3CO2- + H+
This app explores Ka and the dissociation of acids and bases in a pond.
Select a Scenario at top left to begin. This loads an acid-base reaction into
the worksheet on the left.
Press the Run button
to dissociate to equilibrium. Results are animated on the pond display.
Try running each Scenario first. Then edit values on the Worksheet to explore from there. The system
reaches equilibrium when Q = Ka.
