Acid-Base Titration BQ: 1) what is the strength of the antacid? 2) How accurate/precise is this strength? Safety consideration: Goggles and gloves must be worn at all time during experiment to prevent any contact with eyes and skin. If spilled any chemical in gloves throw it away and wear a new one immediately. Handle all chemical carefully. Handle all carefully to prevent from breaking. Procedure and Tests: Week 1 1) 600ml of a 0.5M NaOH solution will be needed, 3MNaOH is provided. Determine how much of the 3M NaOH will be needed. 2) Determine how many mls of a 0.5M NaOH solution will be required to titrate 1.2g of potassium hydrogen phthalate to the nolphthalein endpoint. 3) Use bromothymol blue or…show more content…
It is very likely for this strength not to be accurate because, it is likely to have errors on the previous calculations and data. Reading, Reflection: The main possible source of errors on this experiment is based on the measurement of mass and volume for the experiment, which could affect moles of NaOH and HCl, could as well affect the antacid titration. One question I have after this experiment is that, how the increasing of mole of the tablet would affect the titration? This experimental work can be related to lecture on how acid and acid bases interact to each other, and also this experiment give a better understanding on term pH. A real life application for acid base titration is that is use in medicine and most food
