ACID-BASE titration

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Chemistry Lab Report Acid- Base Titration Using a pH Meter Acid- Base Titration Using a pH Meter Data Collection: Strong acid- Strong base titration: Both NaOH (Strong base) and HCl (Strong acid) are colorless. NaOH was placed in a burette to titrate 25.00 cm� of 0.1 moldm?� HCl that is poured into a conical flask. A pH electrode was used to measure the pH. During titration there was no color change, neither change in temperature nor smell. Table1: The volume of NaOH added from the burette to HCl in the flask and pH of the resulting solution. # Volume of 0.1moldm?� NaOH /cm��0.05 cm� pH / �0.1 0 0.00 1.2 1 2.00 1.1 2 4.00 1.2 3 8.00 1.1 4 10.00 1.2 5 12.00 1.2 6 14.00 1.4 7 15.00 1.4 8 16.00 1.6 9 17.00 1.8 10 18.00 1.7 11 18.50 1.8 12 19.00 1.8 13 19.50 1.8 14 20.00 2.1 15 20.50 2.2 16 20.70 2.3 17 20.90 2.5 18 21.10 2.8 19 21.20 2.9 20 21.50 3.6 21 21.60 4.7 22 21.80 5.7 23 21.90 5.7 24 22.00 6.1 25 ...read more.

Conclusion

Weak acid dissociates partially and has a higher pH than strong acid. As the alkali was added slowly, the [H3O+] decreased. OH?�(aq) + H3O+1 (aq) - 2H2O (l) The pH increased slowly till it reached 6. After that a small addition of the strong alkali caused the pH to jump to 11. This is the vertical region on the graph. It is more in the alkaline region than the acidic region. The rapid change is caused by the low [H3O+]. Addition on the strong alkali increased [OH?�] and thus the pH rapidly. Because the addition of the strong alkali continued, the pH continued to increase slowly. The final pH was almost 12 because it is a strong alkali. The equivalence point is almost 8. It is not equal to 7 because the conjugate base of the weak acid has a tendency to accept a proton from water and OH?� is produced. The solution turns basic. A?� + H2O - HA + OH? Because both the acid and base are monoprotic with equal concentrations the volume of the string base used was almost equal to the volume of the weak acid. ...read more.

    Phenolphthalein was used for the strong acid + strong base experiments and during the weak acid + strong base experiments because the pH jump was expected to be between 2 and 12 for both experiments, and since phenolphthalein's range is 8.2 to 10 (according to the IB chemistry data booklet), it would be a suitable indicator.

    Temperature is defined by a system of gaseous molecules only when their speed distribution is a Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution. Any other type of speed distribution rapidly becomes a Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution by collisions of molecules, which transfer energy. Once this distribution is achieved, the system is said to be at thermal equilibrium, and hence has a temperature.
