(Making sure you pour it up to exactly 0) 3. Get 25ml of Sodium hydroxide and pour it into the conical flask. 4. Add a few drops of Universal Indicator liquid to the sodium hydroxide. ...read more.

Conclusion

7. Keep doing this process in steps of 2cm until you reach you reach about 18cm. Then start letting out the hydrochloric solution in 1cms. And as the solution is near to turning green (Neutral) let the solution out in shorter measurements (i.e. 0.5cm) 8. Record the results and then repeat the whole process twice more.

    This is the end point of your titration. * Keep on repeating the titration until you have achieved a good set of results. Your values should be within 0.1cm of each other. * Remember to record the burette reading. Make sure that the reading is taken at eye level for accuracy, and is taken at the bottom of the meniscus.

    The reason I think this is because the ratio of the reaction is 1:1 so each sodium hydroxide particle joins together with each of the hydrochloric acid particle so this cancels them out to make it neutral. The particles in the sodium hydroxide are reaction in the ratio 1:1 this
