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. Results Titration Initial Reading cm Final Reading Titre cm Rough 1.0 18.10 17.1 1 1.0 17.80 16.8 2 1.0 17.60 16.6 3 1.0 17.70 16.7 4 1.0 17.70 16.6 Average 16.66 Calculations Number of moles in sodium carbonate Moles=Volume X Concentration 0.000964 = 0.01 X 0.0964 Number of moles in HCl 2 X 0.00096= 0.001928 Concentration of HCl Concentration= Mole/Volume 0.116M =0.001928/0.0166 A.S.

    In addition to make sure that the entire mass of sodium carbonate was transferred into the volumetric flask, I rinsed the glass rod, funnel and conical flask 3 times using non-ionised water. Washing out the burette, pipette and volumetric flask with solutions they are supposed to contain before the initiating

    that approximately 25cm3 of the base reacts will react with 25cm3 of the sulphuric acid. To do this I need to calculate the concentration of sulphuric acid, I know that the concentration of the acid is roughly 0.10moldm-3. We must assume that it is this number as we do not know otherwise.

    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.
