Used to determine the quan2ty of analyte (NaOH) in solu2on. •  Buret: An instrument used to do 2tra2ons. It allows us to accurately dispense volumes of liquids. Record volumes to 4 significant figures (ex: 28.54mL) •  Titrant: The solu2on dispensed out of the buret. •  Equivalence Point: The point in the 2tra2on when all of the acid (KHP) in the flask has reacted with base 2trant (NaOH). Key Terms •  Colorimetric Indicator: A compound that changes color once the equivalence point has been reached. Phenolphthalein is the indicator in this experiment. •  Endpoint: The point where the indicator tells you that the equivalence point has been reached. You will record the volumes needed to reach the endpoint. This 2tra2on is carried out to a phenolphthalein endpoint. •  Primary Standard: The acid (KHP) that is reacted with NaOH is a primary standard. See the lab manual for a detailed descrip2on of the characteris2cs of primary standards. •  KHP: Abbrevia2on for potassium hydrogen phthalate. A commonly used primary standard with one acidic hydrogen. KHP reacts with NaOH in a 1:1 ra/o (similar to HCl reac2ng with NaOH). •  Neutraliza2on reac2on: A base reacts with an acid to produce water and an ionic salt. KHP (an acid) neutralizes NaOH (a base) in this 2tra2on. Techniques: Solu2on Prepara2on •  Preparing solu2ons is just like solving dilu2on problems. moles •  Watch your units. Molarity (M) is in Liter •  Use the formula: MiVi=MfVf , where Mi= ini2al NaOH molarity Vi = ini2al NaOH volume (solve for this) € Mf = final NaOH molarity a^er dilu2on Vf = Final volume of diluted NaOH Solu2on Prepara2on Sample Calcula2on •  What volume of the 5.0M stock solu2on of NaOH should be used to prepare 0.5L of 0.1M NaOH solu2on? •  MiVi=MfVf i •  Mi= 5.0M Vi = Solve for this. Mf =0.1M i Vf = 0.5L (5.0M)(V ) = (0.1M)(0.5L) (0.1M)(0.5L) V = = 0.01L (5.0M) € Weighing by Difference •  This is the most accurate method to obtain a mass of a substance. •  1. Weight the bodle containing KHP (ex. 25.754g) •  2. Carefully pour out some KHP into your Erlenmeyer flask. •  3. Weigh the bodle containing KHP again (25.554g). •  Mass of KHP added = Ini2al Bodle Mass – Final Bodle Mass 25.754g − 25.554g = 0.200gKHP € Titra2ons •  Do not rush your 2tra2on. •  The solu2on will turn pink as NaOH is added, and then it will become clear again. •  As you approach the endpoint, the pink color will persist longer. •  At the endpoint, the solu2on in the flask should be a faint pink. € Sample Titra2on Calcula2on Data Needed: Mass of KHP in solu2on MW of KHP: 204.23g/mol Volume (L) of NaOH dispensed (Endpoint Volume). gKHP × 1molKHP 1 × = M _ NaOH 204.23g EndpointVolume 0.6000g × 1mol 1 × = 0.1034 M 204.23g 0.02841L ...
