pKa of a weak acid (HA) and pKb of a weak base (BOH) are 3.2 and 3.4, respectively. The pH of their salt (AB) solution is:
A
6.9
B
7.0
C
1.0
D
7.2

## Explanation

The salt (AB) given is a salt is of weak acid and weak base. Hence its pH can be calculated by the formula

$\therefore$ pH = 7 + ${1 \over 2}p{K_a} - {1 \over 2}p{K_b}$

= 7 + ${1 \over 2}\left( {3.2} \right) - {1 \over 2}\left( {3.4} \right)$

= 6.9
