Acid/Base Titrations

Pre- Lab Questions 1. Using your textbook or a handbook, look up the formula and structure of potassium hydrogen phthalate (KHP) used to standardize the solution of NaOH in this experiment. Calculate the Molar Mass of KHP.
Molar Mass= 204.22 g/mol
Formula: KC8H5O4

2. Using your textbook or chemical dictionary, write the definition of indicator.

Indicator- a substance added at the beginning of the titration that changes color at (or very near) the equivalence point.

3. Suppose a sodium hydroxide solution were to be standardized against pure solid primary standard grade KHP. If 0.4538 g of KHP requires 44.12 mL of the sodium hydroxide to reach a phenolphthalein endpoint, what is the molarity of the NaOH solution?

Questions: 1. Commercial vinegar is generally 5.0 0.5 % acetic acid by weight. Assuming this to be the true value for your unknown, how much were you in error in your analysis?

2. The solid acids chosen for the analysis were typically

    Week One: the experiment started off by preparing 250mL of NaOH solution. About 0.5 grams of NaOH were measured and then inserted into a 250mL volumetric flask. Once the NaOH was in the flask, it was then filled up to the 250mL line using deionized water. After the water was put in the flask, the solution was then mixed well until the NaOH dissolved well in the water. The second solution that was prepared was KHP. This was done by measuring 1 gram of KHP. After that was completed, the KHP was put in a beaker and filled up using 50mL of demonized water and mixed well until the KHP dissolved well in the water. Three drops of the indicator phenolphthalein were put in the KHP solution.…

    The experiment began with the preparation and standardization of NaOH solution. It was calculated that 2.00 grams of NaOH pellets were needed to prepare 0.5 L of 0.1 M NaOH solution. The solution was then standardized by conducting three titration trials. It was calculated that 0.7148 grams of KHP were necessary to neutralize 35 mL of the 0.1 M NaOH. Three samples of KHP were weighed approximating this number (Table 1). Each sample was mixed with 40 mL of deionized water and 2 drops of phenolphthalein in 3 Erlenmeyer flasks. Each flask was then titrated with the NaOH to a light pink endpoint. The volumes of NaOH were recorded, averaged, and the standardized. The molarity of the NaOH was found to be 0.0981.…

    Not every titration requires an indicator. In some cases, either the reactants or the products are strongly colored and can serve as the "indicator". For example, a redox titration using potassium permanganate (pink/purple) as the titrant does not require an indicator. When the titrant is reduced, it turns colorless. After the equivalence…

    In this part the molarity of diluted NaOH was determined. After mixing 800 mL of water with 4.2 mL of 19.1 M NaOH, the diluted solution of NaOH was poured in a buret until the initial volume on the buret was 30.00 mL. 0.3005g of KHP was dissolved in 40.0 mL of 50% ethanol, and a drop of indicator was added to the Erlenmeyer flask containing the KHP solution. When the titration of KHP solution with NaOH reached its endpoint, pale pink color was observed, the final volume of NaOH in the buret, 45.00 mL, was recorded. Based on the data obtained and the equivalent weight of KHP, 204.24g/eq, the molarity of the NaOH was calculated.…
