Experiment 5. Simulation of a Weak Acid-Strong Base Titration Curve
PURPOSE AND LEARNING OBJECTIVES To learn how to excel spreadsheet to simulate a titration. To use graphical analysis to estimate acid present as function of pH. To compare experimental re
Error and Uncertainty
Error: The difference between your answer and the true one.
Systematic (determinant) Error Error associated with a method or equipment flaw. All errors are same size, magnitude and direction. In principle these errors can be discover
Why is it important to measure pH?
Historically it was all about food!
Soil pH~5.5-7.5 for most plants
pH of food influences taste, processing, stability (freshness).
Normal blood pH~7.35
pH is just a
