Clean three 125 mL, 250 or 300 mL Erlenmeyer flasks. It is very important that the flasks be extremely clean and well rinsed with deionized water. Accurately weigh three samples of your dry unknown into the three Erlenmeyer flasks. The unknown samples should weigh between 0.150 - 0.180 grams. 2. Titrate the unknown samples using the same procedure that you used for the standardization of your EDTA solution. Be sure you have three acceptable trials before cleaning up. To determine if a trial is acceptable, calculate the percent mass CaCO3 in the sample for each trial based on your volumes of EDTA and mass of CaCO3 for each trial and then perform the Q test. Report the average percent by mass of CaCO3 in your unknown along with both a relative and standard deviation, and a 90% confidence limit. The post-lab exercises will guide you through these calculations. Clean-up: Rinse all glassware with deionized wa...
