-1 Chemistry 101 Lab Report - Experiment 2 Acid - Base Chemistry Introduction: Experiment 2 was over acid - base chemistry and the fundamental skills for properly using chemistry as a tool to explore the world. Acid - base chemistry has been around for a long time and is used extensively in the field of science. The human body’s delicate pH balance, the earth’s oceans, and most other biological systems all depend on acid - base chemistry and its effects. pH, endpoints, equivalence points, acidity, and basicity were explored in this lab by observing the reactions of different acids with a strong base. Some important terms to know are equivalence and inflection point. The equivalence point is reached when the change in pH becomes very rapid for only a small amount of base added. The inflection point is the largest change in pH per change in volume. Graphically, it is the point on the curve where the slope changes from positive to negative. In this experiment, we titrated various solutions of strong and weak acids with a secondary standard solution of NaOH. A standardized 0.1 M NaOH solution was

    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.
