How to Interpret Titration Curves find the equivalence point it is the steepest part of the curve where the pH rises the fastest the equivalence point can be used to determine the equivalent weight (molar mass) of the acid find the mid point located in the center of the buffer region geometrically halfway between the equivalence point and the beginning of the titration sometimes it is a little more complicated than this - see the example the midpoint determines the pKa of the acid

How to Interpret Titration Curves things to do first graph your data as seen in the next slide make sure you turn on the major and minor tick marks on both axes double click on the axis and click on the “patterns” tab) there is enough precision in the tick marks you should have at least 1 mL or smaller for the minor tick mark on the x-axis you should have at least 0.2 pH units or smaller for the minor tick mark on the y-axis

Two Different Methods there are two methods of analysis that will be shown geometric method requires a ruler, a pencil, and the titration graph 1st derivative method requires a spreadsheet and some formula entries
