This standardized solution of sodium hydroxide can then be used to determine the concentration of acid in the sample of gastric juice. Acid-base titration is when a titration is carried out with a known volume of a strong acid which in this case is HCl, of unknown concentration, with a standard solution of a strong base NaOH. The reaction taking place is: HCl(aq) + NaOH(aq) → NaCl(aq) + H2O(aq) A titration can be used to find the concentration of an acid in gastric juices because the acidity in the gastric juices is mainly caused by hydrochloric
Reaction Scheme [pic] Although sulfanilic acid is insoluble in acid solutions, it is nevertheless necessary to carry out the diazotization reaction in an acid (HNO2) solution. This problem can be avoided by precipitating sulfanilic acid from a solution in which it is initially soluble. The precipitate is a fine suspension and reacts instantly with nitrous acid. The first step is to dissolve sulfanillic acid in basic solution. When the solution is acidified during diazotization to form nitrous acid, the sulfanilic acid is precipitated out of solution as a finely divided solid, which is immediately diazotized.
At this point the volume of base used to neutralized the acid can be determined. Phenolphthalein is the indicator which is colorless in an acid but changes to a faint and permanent pink color in base. The purpose of this experiment is to prepare a sample for titration with a base, become familiar with a buret while using proper titration technique in reaching an end point. Hypothesis : If I titrate a base of known concentration with an acid of unknown concentration then I can determine the concentration can be calculated because of the titration calculation. Materials : • Vinegar • Two small beakers (150mL) • 250-mL Erlenmeyer flask • 10-mL graduated cylinder • 50-mL buret • Buret clamp • Small funnel • M NaOH Hazards : • Chemical spill • Broken glass
Then you will fill a BURETTE with sodium hydroxide (a base) that has a known concentration. Because all the reactants and products in this reaction are colourless, an INDICATOR DYE is added to the sulphuric acid to let us know when all the acid present has been EXACTLY NEUTRALIZED by adding base. Finally, the sodium hydroxide in the burette is added to the acid/indicator solution until the indicator changes colour. (An indicator dye is a chemical that has a different colour in an acid and a base.) PROCEDURE 1.
The solution that is added by buret also called titrant. The sodium hydroxide is used as a standard solution with known concentration. The equivalence point (the equal amount of base and acid) has to reach in a titration process. An acid/base indicator (e.g. Phenolphthalein) is used to show the equivalence point has reached by changing colours.
In a solution of FeSO4, solution of .02 KMnO4 was added until the combination of the solution turned pink. The change of the color pink indicates that the reaction is complete. The process that was undergone with FeSO4 and KMnO4 is called titration. In chemistry, titration is a procedure used to determine the molarity of two or more solutions. Molarity is the number of moles in a compound in a solution over the number of liter in the solution.

Salt Formation |Compound |Solvent |Solubility | |Benzoic Acid |Cold Water |Partially soluble | |Benzoic Acid |10 % NaOH |Soluble | B. Salt Hydrolysis Sodium acetate solution changed the color of litmus from red to blue. C. Reaction With Sodium Carbonate Observation : A lot of gas bubbles was released.
Graphically, it would appear that Styrofoam is the best calorimeter because it remains steady throughout the trial, but this does not connect with the calculated calorimeter constants. Based on the calculations, the next best insulator after cloth towels is aluminum foil, and then paper towels. On the contrary, it would make more sense if Styrofoam was the next best insulator after the cloth towels based of the graphs. Conclusion: In conclusion, the purpose of the experiment was to determine which of several common substances are the best thermal insulating materials. From the data collected, it is observed that the best cup calorimeter out of all the given materials is ceramic.
TITRATION OF AN ACID (A PREPARED STANDARD SOLUTION OF KH₅O₄C₈) AGAINST A BASE (NAOH) USING PHENOLPHTHALEIN AS AN INDICATOR BY GRACE The aim of this experiment is to prepare a standard solution of potassium hydrogen phthalate (KH₅O₄C₈) and then use it to calculate the concentration of sodium hydroxide by titrating the acid (KH₅O₄C₈) against the base (NaOH). Before the whole experiment could take place, some apparatus were needed which included the following; A weighing balance, burette, pipette, a conical flask, clamp and then the setup was as below; THEORY To calculate for the moles of KH₅O₄C₈, I used n (mol) =m (g)/M (gmol⁻ⁱ (JOHN GREEN AND SADRU DAMJI, PG 6 OF CHAPTER 1.THIRD EDITION). Whereby m=mass of the acid, M=molar mass of the acid and n=number of moles. Molar mass of KH₅O₄C₈ is 204.1g/mol and its mass is 1g Therefore=1g/204.1gmol⁻ⁱ n=0.0048996mol Further more, to calculate for the concentration of the acid, I used C(moldm⁻3.) =n (mol)/v (dm3) Whereby c=concentration, n=number of moles and v=volume used.
An acid is a chemical compound that dissociates in a solution and releases hydrogen ions which lowers the pH. A base is the opposite so it donates hydrogen ions making the pH rise. A compound that neutralizes both acids and bases when added to a solution is referred to as a buffer. This is all tied together by the process of titration, which determines the concentration in a solution by adding to it a substance of known concentration in specific amounts. Before testing this experiment, I expected the pH to increase when the acid was added and to decrease when the base was added.
