Introduction: The purpose of an acid-base titration is to find the unknown concentration of one solution by using a solution of known concentration. An acid is a proton donor, while a base is a proton acceptor. There are three main types of acids known as monoprotic, diprotic and triprotic acids. Monoprotic acids contain one mole of H+ ions, per mole and will neutralize one mole of hydroxide, OH- ions. Diprotic acids contain two moles of H+ ions, per mole and will neutralize two moles of hydroxide, OH- ions. Subsequently, triprotic acids contain three moles of H+ ions, per mole and will neutralize three moles of hydroxide, OH- ions. The acid used in this experiment was oxalic acid and the unknown acid. The base used in this experiment was sodium hydroxide (NaOH). In this experiment oxalic acid was used to determine the concentration of
