Learning Objectives to understand the titration curves for the following solutions • a weak acid: acetic acid, CH3COOH. • • • • • a strong acid: hydrochloric acid, HCl. an acidic commercial cleanser. a basic commercial cleanser. to use the titration curves to calculate the percent of the active ingredients in the commercial cleansers. to determine the Ka of a weak acid. Procedure Overview • • • • after calibration of the pH electrode and determination of the flow rate for the automatic titration, a NaOH solution is standardized against HCl. a pH titration curve for acetic acid is obtained and its pKa is determined. an unknown sample of Lysol is analyzed for its HCl content using the standardized NaOH. an unknown sample of Liquid Plumr is analyzed for its NaOH and NaOCl content using HCl of known molarity.

ACID-BASE TITRATION CURVES Questions/Problems 1. Calculate the pH of a solution in which the concentration of the hydronium ion equals 2.0 x 10-4 M.

2. If the pH at the half-equivalence point for a titration of a weak acid with a strong base is 4.60, determine the value of the Ka for the weak acid.

3. When a 0.5725 g sample of Lysol was titrated with 0.100 M NaOH, an endpoint was obtained at 15.00 ml. Calculate the percent (by weight) of hydrochloric acid in the Lysol sample.

4. When a 3.529 g sample of Liquid Plumr was titrated with 0.100 M HCl, two endpoints were obtained. The first endpoint occurred at 15.00 ml, the second at 42.00 ml. Calculate the percentages of both NaOH and NaOCl in Liquid Plumr.

5. If you did a "manual" titration, compare the graphically determined equivalence point and the indicator determined end point. If you did a "timed" titration, the indicator-determined end point MAY have passed too quickly to get meaningful data, but try to make a comparison as best you can.

ACID-BASE TITRATION CURVES Suggested Answers to Questions/Problems 1. (A) Calculate the pH of a solution in which the concentration of the hydronium ion equals 2.0 x 10-4 M. pH = log[H3O+] = pH = 3.70 (b) If the pH at the half-equivalence point for a titration of a weak acid with a strong base is 4.60, determine the value of the Ka for the weak acid. pKa = pH @ ½ equivalence point Ka = 10!4.60 = 2.5 x 10!5 2. When a 0.5725 g sample of Lysol was titrated with 0.100 M NaOH, an endpoint was obtained at 15.00 ml. Calculate the percent (by weight) of hydrochloric acid in the Lysol sample. %HCl = (15...
