Acid-Base Titrations

Describe the techniques and procedures used when preparing a standard solution of required concentration and carrying out acid–base titrations.

A standard solution is a solution with a known concentration. Weigh the solid substance and divide this number by its molecular mass to find the moles. Divide this by the volume of solution to find the concentration.

Why must titres agree within 0.10cm3?

In order to reject inaccurate titres and keep the accuracy of the titration technique

How would you analyse the titration results?

Step 1: Work out the amount, in mol, of the solute in the solution for which you know both the concentration and volume.

Step 2: Use the ratio in the equation to work out the moles of the solute in the other solution.

Step 3: Work out the unknown information about the solute on the other solution.
