/ (4.63/1000) = 0.5399M Discussion During the experiment ,there may be some possible error and some of them can be minimized. First, the water inside the burrete may affect the concentration of sulphuric acid. To prevent this , we need to rinse the burrete with sulphuric acid. ...read more.


Gloves and safety goggles should be weared to prevent the acid contact with our bodies. After doing the experiment , I think some improvements can be made. During titration , I find that the sodium carbonate solution contain some white solid. And they are probably the undissolved sodium carbonate. In order to solve this problem , next time before the titration begins, strring the sodium carbonate solution is necessary. Conclusion The concentration of the sulphuric acid is 0.539M. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.

    The conductivity of a solution depends on the concentration of the solution. In water, it is the ions that pass electricity from one to the next. This means that the more Na+ and Cl- contained in water the more electricity is carried, and the higher the conductivity.

    Evaluation There were few errors that took place during the course of experimentation. These errors could have negligibly affected the results obtained throughout the process. One considerable error that took place was making the sodium hydroxide solution. 1gram of white crystalline sodium hydroxide pellets were required in order to create the solution.
