To make a standard solution of Sodium Carbonate and work out it's molarity.

Extracts from this document...


Making a Standard Solution Aim To make a standard solution of Sodium Carbonate and work out it's molarity. Key points about a standard solution The characteristics of a standard solution are * Must be obtainable in a highly pure state * Must be stable to heat and light, both as a solid and in solution. * Should have a high molar mass * High solubility in H2O Equipment/Safety * Volumetric flask * Sodium Carbonate powder. * Spatula * Deionised water. * Safety goggles * Lab coat * Analytical balance * Weighing bottle * Volumetric flaks stopper. ...read more.


6. Replace the stopper and shake the volumetric flask vigour sly. 7. Now calculate the Morality of your solution Calculations I am now going to work out the molarity of Na2CO3. Na2CO3 (23 X 2)+12(16 X 3) 46 +12+48 106 Moles= Mass/R.M.M 0.0241= 2.5555/106 Concentration =Moles /Volume 0.0964M= 0.0241/ 0.25 Conclusion My aim was to make a standard solution and to work out its molarity As you can see above I have worked out the molarity.the moarity of my sodium carbonate solution is 0.0964M. Titration using Na2CO3 and HCl Aim The aim of this experiment is to find the end point of Sodium Carbonate and Hydrochloric acid Equipment/Safety equipment/Chemicals * HCl * Sodium Carbonate * ...read more.


4. Fill your burette with HCl and read it to 2 decimal places 5. Titrate the alkali in the flask with the acid until the end point is reached. This is when the colour changes from yellow o orange. 6. Record the initial and final burette readings so you can determine the titre for each titration.

  1. Titrating Sodium hydroxide with an unknown molarity, against hydrochloric acid to find its' molarity.

    0.025dm3 of sodium carbonate solution is equivalent to 0.0025 moles of sulphuric acid. We know that the sodium carbonate solution needs to be 0.10 moldm-3 in order to neutralise the sulphuric acid. Therefore to neutralise 25cm3 of 0.10moldm-3 sulphuric acid I need to use 0.0025 moles of sodium carbonate solution,

  2. In order to find out the exact concentration of sulphuric acid, I will have ...

    Concentration = No. of moles = No. of moles = Titration equation: H2SO4(aq) + Na2CO3(aq) � Na2SO4(aq) + H2O(l) + CO2(g) The above equation shows that the actual ratio of sulphuric acid: sodium carbonate is 1: 1. This means that both sodium carbonate and sulphuric acid solutions have the same concentration of 0.1M.

  1. Titration with a primary standard.

    The buret should then be rinsed thoroughly with tap water to remove all traces of detergent and then rinsed thoroughly with distilled water. (These steps are illustrated below). A dirty buret. Notice the liquid clinging to the sides. This will introduce error into your volume measurements.

  2. The aim of this experiment is to find out the concentration of a solution ...

    if this was so, much of the mass weighed out would be water not the sodium carbonate, and you would end up with inaccurate results.) 7. Tare the digital balance. 8. Place a clean dry weighing boat onto the (2 decimal place)
