How do you deduce what the concentration of a particular species of an amino acid is if you are given the pH and concentration of the solution. I know you're supposed to use the Henderson-Hasselbach equation, but that only gives ratios. I guess my question is how do you turn that ratio into a precise concentration of one particular species. (i.e. Given pH4, 0.1M arginine, what is the concentration of R^2+, how much is R^1+, R^0)
