factor = (mass of vitamin C titrated) / (Volume of iodine solution used)
= (125g) / (41.3ml)
= 3.03 mg vitamin C/ml iodine solution
Experiment B: Vitamin C titration using fresh fruit sample to determine the content
The tabulated experimental data for this experiment is shown below (Table 2). In this experiment, the amount of vitamin C was calculated by multiplying the standardization factor with a used iodine solution. That is, the amount of vitamin C in 30ml of 93.54 g mandarin orange juice was 11.514mg.
