Experiment 12 ~ A thermometric titration ~ Lab Report Aim: To determine the conecentrations of hychloric acid and ethanoic acis by thermometric titration and find the enthalpy of neutralization. Procedure: (I) Titration of HCL with standard NaOH: 1. 50cm3 of NaOH solution is pipetted and transfer to the polystyrene cup, It was allow to stand for a few minutes. 2. The initial temperature was recorded. 5.0 cm3 ofHCL was burette to the cup. 3. The mixture was stirred well by using the thermometer, the temperature was recorded. 4. Sucessive 5.0 cm3 portions of HCL was added and the mixture was stirred, the temperature was recorded after each addition. 5. The adding and recording process was continued till the addition of 50 cm3 of acid. (II) Titration of CH3COOH with standard NaOH: 1. ...read more.


2NaCl + H2O As NaOH is limited reagent, ? no. of mole of H2O = (1)(50/1000) = 0.05 mol ?Honeu = 2926/0.05 ?Honeu = ? 58.52 kJ (Calculations) CH3COOH + NaOH ? CH3COOH-Na+ + H2O As NaOH is limited reagent, ? no. of mole of H2O = (1)(50/1000) = 0.05 mol ?Honeu = 627/0.05 ?Honeu = ? 12.54 kJ ?The standard enthaply change of neutralization of using HCl and CH3COOH are ?58.52kJ mol-1 and ?12.54kJ mol-1 respectively. Questions: 1. [H2O] is a constant when it acts as a solvent. The equilibrium will shifts to the left or shift to the right and [H2O] remanins unchanged. As the [acid] and [base] is very low though it is strong, [H2O] remanins unchanged. 2. (I) Some heat is lost to the surrounding. (II) We assume that the heat capacity of the cup is zero. ...read more.


(discussion) We should try hard to make sure whether the rise in temperature is logical, if the temperature have no willing to increase for a degree after a few times of the addition of the strong acid. We should once report it to the teacher to find if the given reagent has a different concentration from given. As sodium hydroxide is very corrosive, we must use the pipette filler supplied, and we must wear lab coat and safety spectacles in the laboratory. The last drop of the pipette should be dipped into the solution. We should fill the burette with a filter funnel and under eye sight for safety reasons. The filter funnel should be removed after filling. The burette should be placed upright to the vertical. Conclusion: The value from experimential result of neutralizatin using HCl and CH3COOH are ?58.52kJ mol-1 and ?12.54kJ mol-1 respectively. The one using HCl is more negative than ?57.6 kJ mol-1 , as the maximum temperture attained may be higher estimated. ?? ?? ?? ?? 1 ...read more.

  1. Planning of Titration

    * First do all the steps below for a rough Titration to see when approximately the end point is so you do not put too much sodium carbonate solution into the acid, which won't give accurate results. Do the rough Titration carefully so you can compare the colour change with the real experiment.

    The unconcordancies of the results may have been a consequence of losing some of the powdered solid, which I saw flying around, and thus not included in the reaction mixture. However, even within an experiment there were anomalous results, which could have been due to reading the temperature incorrectly.

    These hydrogen ions come in various different forms, each different form changing the type of acid. These are called monobasic, dibasic and tribasic acids. Monobasic acids have one free hydrogen to donate to a base, dibasic acids have two to donate, while tribasic have three available to donate.
