Chemistry 154.002 Experiment 6 Acid-Base Equilibria Lauren Best Partner: Glenn Cormack 3/24/08 TA: Lek 1. Objective The purpose of this experiment is to firstly, determine the acid-dissociation constant of an unknown weak acid by performing a computer aided titration; secondly, to determine the concentration of this weak acid in the unknown solution; and thirdly, to calculate the molar mass of the unknown acid. 2. Procedure A) An aqueous solution of NaOH is needed for this experiment. To make this, place about 3 or 4 pellets of NaOH to about 100 mL of water. Stir well with a stirring rod and cover with a watch glass. Be certain to label the beaker. B) The pH probe needs to calibrated. Obtain 15 mL of pH 4 and pH 10. Rinse the pH probe with deionized water. Follow the calibration steps on pg. 63 of the lab manual. C) The standardization of the NaOH solution needs to be determined. Fill buret with NaOH solution. Use a pipet to dispense exactly 10 mL of KHP into a 50 mL beaker. Rinse, and place pH probe in KHP, making sure to swirl the solution. Start collecting data, making sure to press the “keep”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
