Unformatted text preview: Henderson- Hasselbalch equation). In this experiment, you will use a primary standard (potassium hydrogen phthalate, KHP) to standardize a NaOH solution and then use that solution to titrate a polyprotic acid (phosphoric acid, with three titratable protons). You will follow the titration by measuring the pH (potentiometrically) after each addition of NaOH. Appendix 1: Interpolation of data Let’s say that your ½ equivalence point should occur at 30.20 mL and you did not collect a data point at 30.20 mL. However you did collect data at 30.00 mL and 31.00 mL. How do you determine the pH for the 30.20 mL point? The known data points are: (30.00, 9.86) and (31.00, 10.07). You must interpolate using the equation below to find the pH at 30.20 mL. (" X − x % + 1 *$ ' ( y2 − y1 )- + y1 = Y )# x2 − x1 & , € )# 30.20 − 30.00 & , ((10.07 − 9.86). + 9.86 = 9.902 = 9.90 +% *$ 31.00 − 30.00 ' - Possible quiz questions 1. Why does the NaOH solution have to be standardized? 2. The stockroom will sparge (displace the CO2 with N2 gas) the distilled water that we use for the preparation of the standard NaOH solution in order to remove excess CO2 from the solution. Why must the CO2 be removed? (Hint: Think about what happens when CO2 reacts with H2O.) 3. Calculate the concentration (in mol/L) of 30% by weight (30 g NaOH per 100 g of solution) NaOH solution. (The density of the 30% by weight solution is 1.33 g/mL). Show your work. 4. What volume of this 30% by weight solution is needed to make 250 m...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
