Weak Acid- Strong Base and Weak Base-Strong Acid Titrations Introduction The process of obtaining quantitative information of a sample using a fast chemical reaction by reacting with a certain volume of reactant whose concentration is known is called titration. The purpose of this experiment is just that, by titrating two acid bases we can find solution concentrations of two unknowns. In the first titration sodium hydroxide and acetic acid are the two strong base and weak acid used respectively. In the second titrations the strong hydrochloric acid and weak ammonia base shall be titrated. The two unknowns that are to be calculated are the sodium hydroxide and the hydrochloric acid. According to the Bronsted Lowry theory an acid is a molecule that has the ability to remove or get rid of a proton. The difference between a strong acid and a weak one is its ability to give protons away easily. Strong acid give protons away easily while weak acids do not. An base is a molecule that picks up protons. Each acid or base has a opposite conjugate acid and
