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.

    Moles = Mass/Relative Formula Mass 2) Concentration (mol dm-3) = Mass/Relative Formula Mass The concentration will be measured in mol dm-3, therefore in order to use the formulas above; we will have to change the units of the results that we obtained which were in cm3.

    This would have had some sort of effect on the accuracy of the results. Also I noticed that during my second and fourth titration, the size of the methyl drops added to the solution appeared to be twice the size compared to normal ones and this might have contributed to

    Then add sodium carbonate solution, in small volumes, to the acid solution in the conical flask. Swirl the flask after each addition. 6. The four drops of Methyl Orange turns the liquid orange in a alkaline solution. The beaker is placed on a white tile so that when total neutralisation occurs the peach colour can be easily seen.

    -As soon as there is a colour change in the conical flask, stop adding the Sodium carbonate solution. -Take a final reading from the burette to work out how much solution was needed to neutralise the Sulphuric Acid. Then use this to work out the concentration of the ammonia in the conical flask.
