one ratio to produce water in the overall reaction. The error present in this experiment is overall at an insignificant level. There could be a lack of precision attributed to the reagent reservoir dripping out more HCl solution than a rate of about 1 drop per second making the results not as accurate as they could be. The LabQuest could have also been slow in retrieving the pH numbers taking place in the reaction to receive the equivalence point on the graph with all the data collection took during the experiment. Based on the data collection and the small amount of error present in this experiment it was an ideal experiment. Future runs of the experiment could be improved by a more precise reading of each of the NaOH and HCl concentrations to more accurately gather information. Conclusion: The concentration of HCl solution in this experiment was found to be 0.1 M with a one- to-one ratio to the NaOH solution. Titration was found to be an efficient and relatively accurate method to finding the volume of a solution needed to react with another given solution. The majority of the error was likely due to inaccurate measuring and combining of the two solutions while collecting data for the graph.
