The acetate buffer is mixture of acetic acid (weak acid) and acetate ions (conjugated base). Such solutions pH will remain constant even after addition of acid or alkali. Eneter the desired pH and intended buffer strength (in millimoles per liter) in the acetate buffer calculator to perform sodium acetate buffer calculation. Find the approximate masses of anhydrous acetic acid and sodium acetate dihydrate for one liter of solution using the below calculator.
Estimate the amount of acetic acid and sodium acetate for pH as 7.0 and buffer strength as 120.
For the desired pH is 7.0 and buffer strength 120
Amount of acetic acid = 0.0041 % weight / volume
Amount of sodium acetate = 1.6238 % weight / volume.
