Unformatted text preview: 5-24-06Chem 1NLab #13Characterization of an Unknown AcidAbstract:In this experiment, the identity of an unknown acid was determined from a list of possible acids. This was determined by measuring the pKa value, the molar mass, and the melting point of the acid. In Part I two titration curves were found and then drawn to find pKa value and the molar mass. In Part II, the melting point of the acid was found using a meltemp device. The unknown acid was determined to be benzoic acid, since results showed that the molar mass was 123.36 g/mol, the pKa value was 4.35, and the melting point was 117 degrees Celsius.
