Acid Base Titrations II: Potentiometric And Indicator T

Title- Experiment #9- Acid Base Titrations II: Potentiometric and Indicator Titrations Introduction- In this experiment, the reactions of three different acids with a strong base are studied by observing how the pH of the solution changes as the titrant is added. A plot of pH versus amount of titrant added will be constructed. Such a curve is called a pH titration curve. The equivalence point of the reaction will be determined from an analysis of the pH titration curve, and by the use of acid-base indicators. The pH measures the solution whether it is acidic and basic. The pH of the solution could be determined by using the following equation, pH= -log[H+]. It could also be determined by finding the pOH= -log[OH-] and then subtracting …show more content…
The lower the pH, the more acidic the solution is. The higher the pH is, the more basic (less acidic) the solution is. However, by titrating a weak acid with a strong base, the pH of the solution would be depending on how low or high the concentration and ionization are. A strong acid dissociates completely in a solution, meanwhile a weak acid will ionize partially. The equivalence point is an important factor because it can help determine the pH of a solution where the amount of acid equals the amount of base. Also, each indicator has its own pH range. For example, there are indicators that only change color when pH is equivalent to a specific pH that belong within that …show more content…
A buret is then rinsed with ~5mL of the 0.1 M NaOH solution and then filled with the solution with no air bubbles present in the tip of the buret. The Hydrochloric acid is titrated with the 0.1 M NaOH in increments given in the data sheet; mixing well at each point and wait until the pH stabilizes. The pH is recorded at each increment and the electrode is rinsed with distilled water and placed back in the beaker with distilled water. The pipet is rinsed with distilled water and then with 5mL of 0.1 M Acetic acid. Next, 25mL of 0.1 M Acetic acid is pipetted into a 100mL beaker. The 0.1 M Acetic acid is titrated with the 0.1 M NaOH in increments given in the data sheet; mixing well at each point and wait until the pH stabilizes. The pH is recorded at each increment and the electrode is rinsed with distilled water and placed back in the beaker with distilled water. Then, 25mL of 0.1 M Acetic acid is pipetted into a 250mL Erlenmeyer flask. Next, 2-3 drops of the proper indicator is added. The 0.1 M Acetic acid is titrated with the NaOH slowly until a stable color change persists, which is the equivalence point. The buret reading is taken to the nearest 0.01mL. The pipet is rinsed with distilled water and then with 5mL of 0.05 phosphoric acid (H3PO4). Finally, 25mL of 0.05 phosphoric acid (H3PO4) is pipetted into a 100mL beaker. The 0.05 phosphoric acid (H3PO4) is titrated with the 0.1 M NaOH in increments given in the

    To make the desired buffer, another 100 ml beaker was used to prepare a solution buffer of 50 ml. Following the prelab calculations once again and using the weighting balance, the amount of Tris and SDS needed was weighted. The Tris used were 3.206g and SDS 0.205g. The solids were added to the beaker and to this 50 ml of water. The beaker was stir on the stirring plate until the solution dissolved completely.…

    INTRODUCTION 1.1What is an acid-base titration? An acid –base titration is the determination of the concentration of an acid or base by neutralizing the acid or base with an acid or base of known concentration. An acid-base titration is the analysis of the concentration of acids and bases; through this process an acid or base of known concentration neutralizes an acid or base of unknown concentration. The neutralization of an acid or base in acid-base titration can be measured with either a color indicator or a pH-meter. For this experiment we are using a color indicator.…

    To begin the experiment, the buret was prepared for a 0.5 M NaOH and a pH meter was standardized at values 4.00,7.00, and 10.00. Next the 60 ml of 0.1 M HCl was prepared by diluting the 1.0 M HCl provided. Then 5.00 ml of 0.20 g Bromothymol Blue was added as well as a buffer; KH2PO4, 15 ml of H20, and 10 ml 0.1 M HCl which were all measured by a graduated cylinder into each bottle. The pH was then measured and recorded in bottle number one. The next two bottles were buffer solutions and the pH electrode was placed in bottle number two while 0.5 M NaOH was added from the buret while mixing until the reading stabilized to a target pH range.…

    First, a buffered solution of acetic acid and sodium acetate was made by combing 15 mL of .5 M acetic acid, 15 mL of deionized water, and 1.020 grams of sodium acetate. A solution of .25 M NaOH was then prepared using 25 mL of .5 Ml NaOH and 25 mL of deionized water. The burette was then conditioned with 10 mL of deionized water twice and twice with 5 mL of .5 M NaOH. The burette was then filled with .25 M NaOH and the initial volume of 25 mL was recorded. A volumetric pipette was then used to add 10 mL of acetic acid to 50 mL of deionized water and the beaker was placed below the burette.…

    Firstly, 60 mL of silica was added to a 250 mL beaker. After which, an approximate 100 mL of chloroform was added to the beaker to make a pourable slurry. The slurry was then poured into the column and the solvent just about the silica was drained off into a conical flask. To minimize losses, the silica slurry beaker was rinsed with more chloroform and added to the column. Next, a thin layer of acid washed sand (3mm – 4mm) was added to the column.…
