Step 1:

The concentration of acetic acid is [HCH2H3O2] is 0.100 M.

ka for acetic acid is .

The concentration of sodium hydroxide is [NaOH] is 0.100 M.

The equation


Equilibrium Constant : image.

Relation between ka and kb : image.


Step 1:

image generates one mole of  image and one mole of image.

Let image then image.


Step 2:

Find the pH of the solution.

Definition of pOH: image.


Now image.


The pH of the solution is 8.872.
