Unusual Titration Curve Explanation

From Costanzo’s Physiology book in Acid-Base Physiology chapter, this titration curve of a weak acid ($\ce{HA}$), in the context of discussing buffers is provided: What confused me is that in this diagram, the $\mathrm{pH}$ is on the $x$-axis rather than the $y$-axis. Also, why does the peek of the curve has ($\ce{HA}$) only and the […]
