If the acid had been acetic acid rather than HCl (same molar concentration), would the titration results have been
Would acetic acid and HCl of the same molar concentration have the same pH?
Why or why not?
A titration measures the total acidity, or the total amount of acid molecules in a solution. This is not the same as measuring the pH, which is a measure of the amount of ionization or dissociation of H+ ions from acid molecules. The pH depends on the concentration of H3O+ ions in solution rather than the concentration of acid molecules. Therefore two different acids could have different pH's but, on a mol-to-mole basis, could react with the same amount of NaOH in order to reach the equivalence point.
