  • Equivalence Point Lab Report

    solution should be a faint pink color. If the color is too dark of a pink that means that it is overly titrated. The independent variable is the amount of base being added to the solution. The dependant variable is the indicator. The constant variable is the acid which is in the flask. When the solid acid dissolves to form ions, 1 mole of H+ ions are produced for every mole of acid being used. Molarity is used to calculate moles per liter of solution. The most dangerous part of this lab is…

  • Phenolphthalein Chemistry Lab Report

    The reaction of phenolphthalein reacting with sodium hydroxide consists of C20H14O4+ NaOH → NaKC8H4O4 (aq)+ H2O(l) Phenolphthalein is used as an indicator in this reaction because it changes color when a solution reaches a pH of around eight, or in other words the endpoint of a solution. It also allows us to see a physical change, thus resulting in a more accurate measure of how much was titrated. Citric acid is a weak acid, making it best titrated by using a strong base, such as sodium…
