  • Determine The Dissociation Constant, Ka, Of Acetic Acid

    1273 Words  | 6 Pages

    determine the dissociation constant, Ka, of Acetic Acid. In order to do so, sodium hydroxide is titrated into a sample of acetic acid and the equivalence point is determined. Part two of the experiment consists of tested the dissociation constant. Acetic acid is mixed with sodium acetate. Part three of the experiment consists of adding acid or bases into the buffer solution and observing the changes that occur. The independent variable in this experiment is the titration of acetic acid being titrated

    Determining the Equivalent Mass and Dissociation Constant of an Unknown Weak Acid by Titrimetry Ka Chun Wong, and James Ross, Ph.D. East Los Angeles, Chemistry Department, 1301 Avenida Cesar Chavez, Monterey Park, CA 91754 Abstract Chemistry 102 is the study of kinetics – equilibrium constant. When it comes to the study of acid-base, equilibrium constant plays an important role that tells how much of the H+ ion will be released into the solution. In this lab, the method of titrimetry was performed

    strong base (NaOH) against a weak acid (Histidine monohydrochoride ) enables us to know of properties of the weak acid (histidine). Such properties include the pKa of the acid and the pH range of the buffering capacity. One way to relate pH to pka would be through the Henderson – Hasselbalch equation as stated below. pH = pKa + log ([Conjugate Base]/[Acid]) Using this equation and the mid-point of the buffering capacity of the acid, we will be

    temperature and equilibrium constant in weak acids Topic/Purpose The topic of the investigation is equilibria of weak acids, using ethanoic acid. The purpose of the investigation is to determine the relationship between temperature and the equilibrium/dissociation constant of weak acids, by calculating the K_a value of ethanoic acid at various temperatures. Aim The aim of the investigation is to determine whether the relationship between temperature and the equilibrium constant is linear or exponential

    29 EXPERIMENT 3. ACID-BASE TITRATIONS: DETERMINATION OF CARBONATE BY TITRATION WITH HYDROCHLORIC ACID BACKGROUND Carbonate Equilibria In this experiment a solution of hydrochloric acid is prepared, standardized against pure sodium carbonate, and used to determine the percentage of carbonate in a sample. An aqueous solution of hydrochloric acid is almost completely dissociated into hydrated protons and chloride ions. Therefore, in a titration with hydrochloric acid the active titrant species is

  • Levels Of Acid-Buffer Titration

    766 Words  | 4 Pages

    INTRODUCTION For this experiment, a weak acid-buffer titration will be performed. While acids produce hydronium ions in water, bases produce hydroxide ions. To determine how strong an acid or base is, levels of dissociation are observed. While a strong acid or base entirely dissociates in solution, a weak acid or base only partially dissociates in solution. The extent to which a weak acid dissociates in an aqueous solution can be denoted by the constant, Ka, which stands for the ratio in products

  • Disadvantages Of Carboxylic Acid

    carboxyl functional group are commonly known as carboxylic acids, and have the general molecular formula CnH2n+1COOH. Carboxylic acids with two or more carboxyl groups are called dicarboxylic acids, tricarboxylic acids, etc. The carboxyl group is one of the most frequently occurring functional groups in chemistry and biochemistry. Apart from the carboxylic acids, the carboxyl group also parents a large family of related compounds called carboxylic acid derivatives (amides, esters, thioesters, acyl halides

  • Investigating The Properties Of An Unknown Compound

    2418 Words  | 10 Pages

    Discussion and Scientific Explanation The initial goal of this experiment was to investigate the properties of an unknown acid or base. These properties include pH, concentration, and how the solution behaves once titrated. In order to accomplish these goals, the initial pH of the unknown compound needed to be found through the use of pH strips and/or a PASCO probe. It was also necessary to titrate the unknown compound to find the equivalence point, which would allow the calculation of the initial

    Objective In this experiment, the pKa, dissociation constant, of 2-naphthol was determined by measuring the UV-visible absorption spectra of solution of the acid at different pH values. Procedure In this experiment, solutions of 2-naphthol will be prepared in buffer solutions with pH values near the expected pKa (refer to Table 7.1 in the lab Manual) at 25 °C and the UV-visble spectra of each solution will be measured using a Cary 50 spectrometer. For detailed procedure, refer to the lab manual
