Base/Acid Ratios in Buffers Just as pH is the negative logarithm of [H3O+], pKa is the negative logarithm of Ka, pKa=?logKa The Henderson-Hasselbalch equation is used to calculate the pH of buffer solutions: pH=pKa+log[base][acid] Notice that the pH of a buffer has a value close to the pKa of the acid, differing only by the logarithm of the concentration ratio [base]/[acid]. Part A Acetic acid has a Ka of 1.8
