Based on your description, I would suggest to add $\displaystyle\frac{\pu{321 g}}{\pu{1.1998 g cm^{-3}}} = \pu{267.5 mL}$ of saturated salt solution (assuming approx. $\pu{25 °C},$ ambient temperature). A report The Densities of Saturated Solutions of NaCl and KCl from 10° to 105 °C by U.S. Geological Survey (PDF) contains a collection of density values for ...

This question and the one referenced by Mithoron address NH$_4$HF$_2$ as an entity in itself which must be examined as a whole. It is easier conceptually to rewrite the formula for the compound as NH$_4$F.HF. Consider adding NH$_4$F to water: you get a pH near 7. In a separate container, add HF to water (~0.1 M); you get a pH ~1 https://ehs.princeton.edu/...

You need to write out all the possible equilibria just like you do in the case of a multiprotic acid like Phosphoric acid. You will also need to have a pKa for every equation. The bifluoride ion will obviously dissociate in water

We happen to be measuring aqueous solutions instead, so I am trying to identify useful reference solutions we can prepare. This experiment is really problematic. mid-IR is not meant for aqueous solutions. Water is a no-no in infrared spectroscopy. Look at the low transmittance of water in mid IR range. Liquid water is going to swamp everything. What will be ...

Both your paragraphs are valid, as all present components are balanced by 3, mutually linked equilibrium reactions, with the respective equilibrium constants: $\ce{HF + H2O <=> F- + H3O+}$, $K_\mathrm{a}$ $\ce{F- + H2O <=> HF + OH-}$, $K_\mathrm{b}$ $\ce{2 H2O <=> H2O+ + OH-}$, $K_\mathrm{w}$ with the relation $K_\mathrm{a} \cdot K_\mathrm{...
