Jamie BrownLab, Week #5UNKNOWN ACID AND BASE TITRATIONIntroductionFor the Unknown Acid and Base Titration lab, we explore and decide whether the unknown is a base or an acid. We are able to decide based on the pH number at the end of the experiment. The pH scale will tell us what the unknown is because a pH of less than 7 is an acid, at 7 is neutral, and above 7 is a base. Adding a base to an acid will result in H2O and a salt. We will also look for the concentration of the unknown at the end of the experiment. The unknown in the experiment is an acid. Also, in order to get these results, I had to add what seemed to be a lot of the base.ProcedureThe first thing for this experiment is to record the pH of the acid and the base in the experiment. Start by clicking the equipment tab at the top of the screen and select beaker, 100mL. Right click on the beaker and select chemicals. Choose 0.1 M HCl from the dropdown menu, select 50mL and click ok. When the chemical has been added, right click on the beaker and select pH meter. To get the pH for NaOH, repeat
