Lab Report on Titration

Extracts from this document...


Chemistry lab Report Titration Aim: To calculate the concentration of alkali. Background Information: Standard Solution: Standard solution is a chemical term which describes a solution of known concentration. The concentration of the solution is normally expressed in units of moles per Litre Alkali:A base that is soluble in water is known as Alkali. Volume of acid X concentration of acid =1 Volume of alkali X concentration of alkali Apparatus and Materials: * 25 cm3 Pipette * 10 cm3 Burette * Retort stand * Conical Flask * Funnel * 2 Beakers * Marble * Safety Glasses * Distilled water * Alkali * Standard solution of acid phenolphthalein Method: 1) ...read more.


10) Record the volume of the alkali required to neutralize the acid 11) Repeat the experiment a number of times to obtain precision and accuracy. Data Analysis: Sr. No Volume of Acid-potassium hydrogen phthalate(cm3) Volume of Alkali-sodium hydroxide (cm3) 1. 10 10.3 2. 10 10.2 3. 10 10.1 4. 10 10.3 5. 10 10.2 6. 10 10.2 Calculations: Conc. Of acid Volume of the acid (cm3) Volume of the base (cm3) 0.1 g/ dm3 10 cm3 10.3 cm3 0.1 g/ dm3 10 cm3 10.2 cm3 0.1 g/ dm3 10 cm3 10.1 cm3 0.1 g/ dm3 10 cm3 10.3 cm3 0.1 g/ dm3 10 cm3 10.2 cm3 0.1 g/ dm3 10 cm3 10.2 cm3 Let the concentration of the alkali be 'A' 0.1 x (10 x 6) ...read more.


100 = �0.49% Uncertainty in the volumetric flask: �0.05 cm3 % error in the volumetric flask = (0.05 / (100)) 100 = �0.05% Hence the error in the concentration of the acid is �0.54% Therefore, the total error in the concentration of the alkali = � (0.48+0.036+0.49+0.54) % = � 1.546% Error Analysis: The possible reasons for the error are: * The fluctuating temperatures in the area where the experiment was being conducted caused inaccuracy to the calculations. * There could have been error of parallax while taking the volume of the liquid. * I might have exceeded the neutral mark while adding the alkali to the solution. Conclusion * The concentration of alkali was 0.097 g/ dm3 * There could have been an improvement in the result if certain random errors had not occurred.

    Since the discrepancy % is low, we have accepted the experimental value. The deviation from the theoretical amount is small and the errors that could have affected the result range from systematic errors such as calibration of the apparatus used to random human errors such as parallax in reading the values.
