To prepare a standard iron (II) solution
To determine the concentration of potassium permanganate solution

Preparation of Standard Iron (II) Solution
8g of hydrated iron (II) ammonium sulfate is weighed accurately using a 50mL beaker.
The salt is transferred to a 250mL volumetric flask using a filter funnel, washed down with distilled water. The container is rinsed carefully and the rinsing is added to the volumetric flask.
100mL of water is added slowly to the volumetric flask, followed by 5mL of concentrated H¬2SO4.
It is stoppered, shaken well and made up to the mark with distilled water.

Standardizing Potassium Permanganate Solution
The potassium permanganate is placed in the burette and the initial reading is recorded.
25mL of Fe(II) solution is pipetted from a correctly rinsed beaker into a 250mL conical flask. 10mL of 2M H2SO4 is added using a measuring cylinder.
It is titrated until the end point and the final reading is recorded.
The second reading is recorded in the usual manner.
The experiment is repeated to obtain concordant results. (Titre highest - Titre lowest ≤ 0.10mL)
The concentration of the KMnO4 solution is calculated in molL-1.
A full report is written for this experiment: Title, aim, procedure, data recorded, calculation and results, discussion (random error source and minimization explained; possible systematic error source identified and detection explained) and conclusion.
