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.

The indicator phenolphthalein is used in experiment 1 and starch was use as an indicator in experiment 2.Phenolththalein is a colorless in acidic solution and pink in

The mixture in 2 was titrated against sodium thiosulfate placed in a 50.00 mL burette.

4. Steps 1-4 was repeated untill a difference of 0.01 mL is noticed in values taken.
2.0 LITERATURE REVIEW
Experiment 1:
Titration is a common laboratory method of quantitative chemical analysis that is used to determine the unknown concentration of an identified analyte. IN our case, it is an acid-base titration.
In the titration the titrant(solution with a known concentration of reagent) is added to the analyte through a burette untill the reaction is completed. The titration isterminated when the end-point is reached. The end-point is normally noticed by a rapid change in color of the solution.
This type of reaction also known as neutralization reaction which means formation of water. It normally occurs at pH 7.
Experiment 2:
The aim of standardizing a solution of sodium thiosulfate pentahydrate is to find its exact concentration from the approximate given value.
On titrating, the color changes from colorless to pale yellow and only then 2 drop of starch is added to the solution to become dark blue.
The reason why starch was added close to the end point is to prevent the production of starch-iodine complex over time.

The average of volume of NaOH used in the calculations was calculated as the average of the two best values which increases accuracy.
The final pH of the titration can be altered if excess indicator is a added.
Experiment 2:

To prepare the solution of KIO3, the mass that must be added in 250 mL of distilled water must be calculated as shown; 1 mol of KIO3 is contain in 214.00g 0.005 mol of KIO3 1.07g Since the potassium iodate is only 99% pure 99% 1.07g 100% 1.081g
Hence, mass of KIO3 used= 1.081g

Apart from KIO3 and KI, sulfuric acid is also present in the conical flask, in excess, to provide H+ ions to increase the rate of reaction. 2.3 Conclusion

After having done both experiment in the laboratory, we can conclude that he titration method relying on visual detection of the end point for quite precise determination of the unknown

    For both trials, we used 25ml of Sprite. In Trial 1, 5.3ml of sodium hydroxide was added to the solution via titration. In Trial 2, 5.2ml of sodium hydroxide was used. To calculate molarity for Trial 1, we used the molarity of sodium hydroxide (NaOH), .101 and multiplied this number by the milliliters of NaOH used, 5.3. Then we used the molar relationship from the equation and divided by 3 moles of NaOH which is related to 1 mole of Acid, because they have a 3:1 relationship respectively.…

    Therefore –OH is ortho, para directing and -NH2 is meta deactivating. With all this in mind, positions 3 and 5 are more likely (on carbon 2 and 4 on the NMR). 5 is more likely and not 3 because of steric hindrance. Experimental In a 100ml round bottomed flask, salicylamide (2.0g, 14.6mmol, 1eqiuv) and sodium iodide (2.4g, 16mmol, 1.1equiv) were dissolved in absolute ethanol (40ml). The solution was stirred and cooled to 0°C using a water bath.…

    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.…

    Addition of NH3 will form Cu(NH3)42+,a copper tetramine complex with a dark-blue color, indicating a slightly basic solution. Adding H2SO4 will bring the solution to a lighter blue color, indicating that it is slightly acidic to neutral. As discussed previously, this will prevent iodide from being oxidized by atmospheric oxygen in the presence of excess acid. In addition, it also prevent Cu(OH)2 from precipitating in the solution due to an highly basic environment. Finally, H3PO4 is added to the solution to prevent Fe3+ in brass from being reduced to Fe2+ by iodide since phosphate will form a complex with Fe3+.…

    The experiment used volumetric analysis, in which a known quantity of a substance reacts with an unknown amount of another substance for an aqueous solution reaction.2 To standardize the NaOH solution and determine the molar concentration, it needed to react with a primary standard acid due to NaOH being hygroscopic, in which it readily absorbs water vapor.1 In this case, KHC8H4O4 served as the primary acid standard since it’s only slightly hygroscopic and the mass was known, in which the moles could then be calculated from using the equation: mass (g) KHC8H4O4 mol KHC8H4O4204.23 g KHC8H4O4= mol KHC8H4O4 The reaction occurs with the dispensal of the NaOH titrant from the buret into a flask containing the KHC8H4O4, which functioned as the analyte. The balanced equation for this reaction was: KHC8H4O4 (aq) + NaOH (aq) → H2O (l) + NaKC8H4O4 (aq). This indicates that there is a one-to-one mole ratio, in which one mole of KHC8H4O4 reacts with one mole of…
