Kimberly Troncoso Chemistry II Lab Project Concentration of conjugate base by Conductivity 4/4/18 Introduction: The purpose of this experiment is to determine the conductivity of Sodium citrate (citrate is a salt or ester of citric acid). You can use to compare it to the conductivity of the solution assigned. If both solutions have the same conductivity, there is a chance that the formula was plagiarized. If not, the formula was probably not plagiarized. There are many ways to achieve this. One way to do this will be by preparing a couple stock solutions. Then, record the conductivity. Continue to do this until the conductivity reaches between the range 300-6000 microSiemens /cm^-1. After that you create 4 other solutions within the range of 300-6000 microSiemens /cm^-1. The goal is to make a calibration curve for sodium citrate. Using the line of best fit, it will be possible to predict the concentration of the unknown. In order to measure the conductivity, use a multimeter. The multimeter is equipped with a probe. After the probe is placed in the liquid to be measured, the multimeter applies voltage between two electrodes inside the probe. Electrical resistance from the solution causes a drop in the voltage, which is read by the meter. The meter converts

    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.
