A Thermometric Titration

Table: (Representing the results obtained from the experiment)

Known Acid
HCl 1 mol dm-3 (± 0.100)
Unknown Acid
HCl 0.76 mol dm-3 (± 0.100)
Highest Temperature (Time)
28.5 (190s)
28.6 (235s)
Lowest Temperature (Time)
22.9 (55s)
22.9 (55s)

Sample Calculation for the Unknown Concentration
C1V1 = C2V2
1 (190 - 505) = C2 (235 - 505)
1 28.0 = C2 37.0
C2 = 2837
C2 = 0.760 mol dm-3 (±0.0500)

Sample Calculation for the amount of mole in Unknown Acid
Mole = Concentration Volume
Mole = 0.760 (±0.0500) (235 - 505) (±0.0100)
Mole = 0.760 (±0.0500) 37.0 (±0.0100)

First with Hydrochloric acid (HCl) of concentration 1.00 mol dm3 and Second with again Hydrochloric acid (HCl) of an unknown concentration. The main aim of this experiment was to find the concentration for the unknown Hydrochloric acid and to determine the quantity of energy released in the titration. With the help of the known Hydrochloric acid concentration the unknown was determined. Although there was no hypothesis made before the experiment as it was not required.

With the required equipment, Hydrochloric acid was poured into a burette upto 0mL. A pipette was used to gather 25.0 cm3 of Sodium Hydroxide and transfer it into a Beaker. However during the experiment, 25.0 cm3 was converted into dm3, which resulted as 0.0250 dm3. The Beaker was placed underneath the Burette during the titration process. During the setup, a temperature probe was placed in the beaker containing the NaOH, as the temperature was to be recorded. Once the temperature of the solution was stabilized after 50s, 1.0 dm3 of Hydrochloric Acid was titrated into the solution of NaOH. The mixture was stirred as the titration continued. Successive 1.0dm3 portions of HCl solution were added at every intervals of 5 second, stirring of the mixture continued as the process continued, as it helped the two solutions of NaOH and HCl to mix properly. The temperature of the NaOH solution was recorded, with the help of Logger Pro. This data is

It might have affected the result obtained for the unknown concentration and hence also the quantity of energy released during the titration.
After the first titration, we should have used a different Burette or we could’ve washed the burette first with water and then with HCl of 0.76 mol dm-3 (the unknown concentration), so that all the HCl of 1.0 mol dm-3 emptied.
Heat Lost to the Surrounding

Systematic: Procedural

Steps : 5-7
It would affect the result of the quantity of energy released in the titration.
During the titration, a lid might be used to avoid the heat lost to the surrounding.
Although, There would still be heat lost to the surrounding, but the amount would be lesser.
Time lapse during the titration

Systematic: Procedural

Step : 5-7
It would affect the time data for the maximum and minimum temperature, and hence would affect the result of the unknown concentration and the energy

    Solid sodium sulphate decahydrate crystals of 4.00 g were added to the water in the calorimeter and stirred until it dissolved. The final temperature of the water was then recorded. This process was repeated using 1.03 g and 2.07 g of sodium sulphate decahydrate, and 1.01 g, 1.50 g and 2.02 g of anhydrous sodium…

    One source of error could be that when the reactant was being poured into the calorimeter, leaving the lid open for too long let too much heat loose, which would affect the results. This would have affected reactions 1 and 2, and that increased percent error would affect the enthalpy of reaction 3 calculated using Hess’s Law. It affected the enthalpy calculated from the in-lab results less because the was only one reaction where that error could affect the…

    The procedure was followed for the solution that used 1ml of Sodium thiosulfate and 2mL of the other chemicals. A 500mL beaker was filled with ice water and a thermometer was placed inside the water to record the temperature. When the temperature reached 2.3 degrees Celsius the solution was placed inside and the KI was then added into the solution. The hot beaker was placed onto the hot plate to slowly increase the temperature until it reached 18.7 degrees Celsius where a new solution was placed inside again. This repeated for 18.7, 35.0, and 51.6 degrees…

    Impurities in this experiment can result from incomplete acetylation of aspirin or hydrolysis of the aspirin during the isolation steps. The first test to determine the purity of the sample was to take the mass of the of acetylsalicylic acid product and compare it to the theoretical yield. The percent yield of the acetylsalicylic acid sample was 99.36% which indicates that the experiment was successful and followed the rules of chemistry. The second test to determine the purity of the sample was to mix 2.5% ferric chloride with a few crystals of acetylsalicylic acid product. The ferric chloride will create an iron-phenol complex with iron that causes a color change ranging from red to violet color.…

    Purpose Titration is a technique where an unknown solution’s concentration is determined with a solution of a known concentration. In this case, the known solution, NaOH, is dripped into the unknown, unknown #2, with a burette. The NaOH is dripped until the reaction is complete, while measuring the pH per amount of base added. Using the data collected, the equivalence point can be found and the concentration can be calculated. Then the KA can be found at specific points (20%, 40%, etc).…

    Then the team put some hot water inside a Styrofoam cup to measure the temperature and the team watched the difference between the time and the temperature. Later, the team measured the boiling point of pentane approximately to be 32.4690 Celsius. Then the team used another test tube with Acidic Acid in it and it was inserted to a Styrofoam cup filled with ice to measure the freezing point. The team observed the change in the temperature and how it decreased noticeably at first then it started to decrease in a more stable way. The team measured the freezing point of Acetic Acid, which was 13.884 Celsius.…

    The Zinc nitrate hexa hydrate [Zn(NO3)2.6H2O] and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) was adopted as synthesis precursors. The production unit for this chemical synthesis method was consisted of three neck glass flask and of a magnetic stirrer with temperature control. The reaction was carried out in a nitrogen environment to prevent oxidation. In the plass chamber, NaOH was dissolved in Starch solution (3% concentration of Starch in double distilled water solution) to a concentration of 0.1M and the resulting solutions were stirried at 700 C for 1 hour. Then, a solution of 0.5 M Zn(NO3)2.6H2O was added dropwise under constant stirring.…

    In order to separate the volatile components with similar boiling points, multiple simple distillations would have to be performed on the first fraction of distillate obtained, each one producing a more pure sample of the more volatile component. Because this method is inefficient and yields a very low volume of the target solvent, fractional distillation is instead used to separate a mixture of volatile solvents with similar boiling points. Fractional distillation is a method of separation similar to simple distillation, in that volatile components of a solution are separated based on boiling point. The addition of an insulated column to the distillation apparatus in fraction…
