I.B. CHEMISTRY: PRACTICAL 08-12-12. P2,P3,& P4-STOICHIOMETRY SULAIMAN JALLOH AIM: 1) To prepare a standard solution of potassium hydrogen phthalate by weighing and dissolving it water of correct volume. 2)To use the standard solution of 1) to standardize(find the concentration of) sodium hydroxide solution. 3)To determine the percentage of ethanoic acid,by volume,in vinegar,by titrating with standardized sodium hydroxide in 2) 1) MAKING A STANDARD SOLUTION OF POTASSIUM HYDROGEN PHTHALATE RAW DATA TABLE mass of weighing bottle,m+/-0.01g Volume of solution titrated,v+/-0.15 Concentration of sodium hydroxide given ,Cb/mol/ 33.88 250.00 0.1 The purity of the acid is given as 99.5+/-0.5% Calculations for the mass of the acid needed to make 250 of solution of the acid. Equation for the reaction: C6H5COOKCOOH+NaOH C6H5COOKCOONa+H2O so,the mole ratio of the acid to base is 1:1 This means 1 mole of acid gives 1 mole of the base. number of moles of sodium hydroxide,Nb=c v where c=concentration of sodium hydroxide v=volume of solution titrated Nb=0.1 250/1000) Nb=0.0250moles Hence the number of moles of the acid will be 0.0250 moles since the mole ratio is 1:1 number of moles ...read more.
