"pH titration of weak acid with overlapping pKa values"
I am trying to determine the calculations for determining the experimentatl pKa from measured pH values, known acid conc and known base conc. I am only able to determine calculations for two overlapping dissociations but not three - it is a similar case to citric acid titrated with NaOH.Jen Witherspoon
