Austin Meunier Che 111-007 Lauren Ison Partner: 4/6/11 Intro The whole goal of this experiment is to understand the concept of titration. Titration is a volumetric analysis procedure for determining the concentration of an unknown solution (the analyte) by measuring the quantity of a reagent solution of known concentration (the standard solution) required to completely react with it. The standard solution will always react with the analyte, based on the stoichiometry of the balanced chemical equation. The focus of this experiment will be on acid-base, or neutralization, titrations. At the equivalence point in an acid-base titration, the moles oh H+ will equal the moles of OH-. Determining the moles of NaOH added at the equivalence point and using the stoichiometry of the balanced chemical equation will determine the concentration of the acid. pH is a value that can be determined experimentally to quantify the acidity of a solution. The pH scale is from 0 to 14. The stronger the acid lower the pH will be. The stronger the base, the higher the pH will be. In this experiment, you will titrate a hydrochloric acid solution, HCl, with a basic sodium hydroxide solution, NaOH. In this experiment we will be using a buret. When using a buret, you need to estimate one
