PURPOSE The purpose of this experiment is to determine the acidity of the car battery. This can be done by using a method called titration. The car battery acid will be poured into a beaker where four drops of indicator will be added. Then NaOH (strong base) will be added to the battery acid until a color change is noticed. By recording the amount of NaOH used to establish the color change, the acidity of the battery can be obtained after a series of calculations. In terms of chemistry, we are adding hydroxide ion (OH) that comes from NaOH into an acid where it donates an hydride ion to the hydroxide ion to reach an equivalence point. PROCEDURES The first step is to prepare 250mL of 0.1 M NaOH solution and transfer it using a graduated cylinder with to a flask. Then mix the solution before filling the flask with distilled water up to the mark and mix it again. Then pour the NaOH solution into a 50.00 mL buret making sure to remove any bubbles that may have formed. Then determine the
