To start off, we were given a crushed tabled of an unknown analgesic in a vial. ...read more.


We continued this process until we had added 5mL of the NaOH. After all pH measurements had taken place, we rinsed the beaker of its contents. Our analysis was to figure out what the unknown analgesic was. We had three different analgesic from which to choose. ...read more.


For the other two analgesics, the pH measurements varied distinctly for each one. Here is a simple chart showing the obvious consistency of the pH levels: As you can clearly see, the pH remained consistent throughout the experiment. Compare this chart to the other pH measurements of the other analgesics: Based on our data, the pH readings from the unknown substance match the pH reading from the aspirin. Sincerely, Zachary May ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
