Extracts from this document...


Plan for the practical Assessment Aim - to find the accurate concentration of Sulphuric (VI) Acid that has a concentration between 0.05 and 0.15 mol dm� Apparatus 1. Standard Solution Scales 250cm� Volumetric Flask 100cm� Beaker 2. Titration Clamp Stand Burette Pipette Filler Beaker White Tile (iii) Chemicals Distilled Water Calcium Carbonate Sulphuric Acid Method for finding the Standard Solution 1. Calculate the mass of 1 mole of Sodium Carbonate by adding together the element's relative atomic masses, which can be found on a periodic table. 2. Calculate the mass of 0.1 moles of Calcium Carbonate. This is done by using the mass of 1 mole (calculated in step 1) ...read more.


As it is impossible with the equipment given to get exactly the right mass, note down the actual mass, given by the scales, to three decimal places. 5. Add 100cm� of distilled water to the weighed out Sodium Carbonate and stir until you cant see anymore Calcium Carbonate as it has all dissolved. Pour this into the 250cm� volumetric flask and fill up to the 250cm� line with distilled water. 6. After you have done this you can find the actual concentration of the solution by using the following equation: Moles of Sodium Carbonate in 250cm� = Mass dissolved Mass of 1 mole The second half of this experiment is titration. ...read more.


If it is swallowed, wash out mouth and give one or two glasses of water. Don't induce vomiting. Seek medical advice as soon as possible. If it is splashed into the eye flood the eye with gently running tap water for 10 minutes. Seek medical advice If it is spilt on clothes or skin remove the clothes quickly and wipe as much liquid as possible away with a dry clothe before drenching the area with lots of water. If a large area of skin was affected or blistering seek medical advice. If it is spilt in the laboratory, wear eye protection and gloves and cover with mineral absorbent and scoop into a bucket. Add anhydrous sodium carbonate and leave to react. Once the reaction has occurred add lots of cold water. ...read more.

    of sodium carbonate, as it can been seen from the above equation. So far I have worked out the number of moles of acid used and the precise volume of an average titre and this means that I am ready to work out the specific concentration of the sulphuric acid.

  1. Determine the concentration of sulphuric acid by acid-base titration.

    The solution should be delivered quickly until a couple of ml from the endpoint, swirling the flask after each point. 4) The endpoint should be approached slowly, a drop at a time. 5) The end of the reaction is when the first colour change is observed, which is yellow.

    Run in small volumes of sodium carbonate solution until the first occurrence of a permanent peach colour in the titration mixture. This is the end point. 7. Record the final reading by reading off the burette at eye-level from the base of the meniscus and calculate the volume of sodium carbonate solution that has been used.

    I believe that 25cm� of sulphuric acid and 10 drops of indicator will be adequate to gain satisfactory results. 'Acids and alkalis are classified as 'strong' or 'weak' depending on the extent to which they form ions when dissolved in water.'

  2. Determine the concentration of lime water.

    Detailed method of procedure used To start the experiment I firstly need to dilute the Hydrochloric acid. By using a pipette and a flask it is a good way of making sure the experiment is accurate. I need to dilute the acid to 0.125 moles.
