Calculate the pH of a buffer solution prepared by mixing 8.5g KH2PO4 with 43.5g K2HPO4 in 1 liter of water (this is actually the composition of the dilution water used in a BOD test.

Follow the same procedures you have been using for previous acid/base equilibrium problems, and develop an Excel spreadsheet to identify the pH.

Use alpha derivations.
