Experiment Title: Acid-Base Titration

Abstract:
Vinegar is a common household item containing acetic acid as well as some other chemicals. This experiment is designed to determine the molar concentration of acetic acid in a sample of vinegar by titrating it with a standard solution of NaOH.
CH3COOH(aq) + NaOH(aq) -> CH3COONa(aq) + H2O(l)
By adding the sodium hydroxide, which is a basic solution, to the acetic acid, which is an acidic solution, a neutralization reaction occurs. An indicator known as phenolphthalein, is also added to the vinegar. This indicator turns the solution to a dark pink when excess NaOH is added

Using a 10-mL graduated cylinder or a 5.0-mL pipet, transfer 5.0-mL of vinegar to a 250-mL Erlenmeyer flask.
Add about 25-mL of distilled water to increasethe volume of the solution for titration. (This will not affect your results)
Add 2-3 drops of the phenolphthalein indicator to the solution in the flask.
Obtained a 50-mL buret and place it in a buret clamp. Using a 250-mL beaker, obtain about 100-ml of 0.1M NaOH solution.
Recorded the Molarity (M) of the NaOH solution, which is 0.187M.
Rinsed the buret with two 5-mL portions of the NaOH solution. Discard the washings.
Observed the markings on the buret. The top is marked 0.0-mL and the bottom 50-mL. Place a small funnel in the top of the buret and slowly pour the NaOH solution into the funnel.
NaOH solution reaches the top line, lift the funnel and allow the solution to fill top line.
Using a small beaker, slowly open the stopcock and drain NaOH solution untilthe meniscus of the NaOH solution is at the 0.00-mL line or below. The buret tip should be full of NaOH solution, and free of bubbles.
Recorded the initial level of NaOh solution in the buret.(Trial 1&2:

Even when there was pink color, it often lasted only for a few short seconds until it was swirled away. The actual point of neutralization was a drop before the solution turned pink, but the results from one drop after was close enough. The volume of NaOH that was put into the vinegar was 25.50-mL. The amount of NaOH one drop before that would have been ideal but that did not have a large affect on the data. For this lab, two trials were performed to decide if mistakes were made in the first trial. The completion of two trials completed to help rule out any obvious experimental errors. If mistakes were made in the single trial, the mistakes were not as easily picked up on. I believe the results were generally accurate, although experimental error could have been a factor by inaccurate measurement readings, as well as inaccurate judging of when the pink color was what it was suppose to be. In trial 2 of the experiment, the volume of NaOH that was put into the vinegar was 25.45-mL. The average of the volume in liters was 0.02498-mL. The volume of NaOH in trial #1: 25.50-mL, and trial #2: 25.45-mL at a concentration of 0.1817M. It seemed accurate that the mass of the acetic acid in the vinegar was .2726g. The comparison between those two trials is understandable because there was much more NaOH then vinegar.

    The pH indicator, phenolphthalein, turned a light shade of pink when it was in a solution with a pH of 7. Neutralization reactions occur when an acid is mixed with a base. The product of this reaction is a salt and water. These reactions are double displacement reactions, because the cation of the base mixes with the anion from the acid, forming a base, and the hydrogen from the acid mixes with the anion from the base, forming water. In this reaction, the sodium ion from the sodium hydroxide attracts to the acetate ion from the acetic acid, and the extra hydride ion bonds with the negative hydroxide ion to form water. The water produced by the reaction had a pH of seven, and so when the whole solution was light pink, we knew the reaction had fully…

    This experiment was done to determine the molarity of acetic acid in vinegar. The acetic acid in vinegar was titrated with a strong base sodium hydroxide to determine the equivalence point of this chemical reaction. The indicator phenolphthalein was used because the moment it changes color is on the basic side of the pH scale. To insure the experiment was done with the most accuracy, the two conductors of this experiment took three different trials to attempt to reach the best endpoint possible between the two. After punching in numbers and calculating results through a stoichiometry equation, the resultant molarity was .960M, but the actual molarity was .845M. We found that it took 9.60 mL of NaOH to…

    A titration is a technique used to find the solution of known concentration in the concentration of another unknown solution. Typically, the known solution is added from a known quantity of unknown solution until the reaction is complete. Titrations are also often used to determine the pH of a solution. This is important because without knowing how acid or basic a solution is people could hurt themselves and others but mixing chemicals together that are lethal. The objective of the is lab is to develop familiarity with the concepts and techniques of titration and to determine the concentration of an acidic acid solution. It was necessary to add Phenolphthalein because it acts as an indicator, that is a weak acid, so it is easier…
