HCl : Na2CO3 = 2 : 1 ? Number of mole of HCl = (0.0123)(2)(25/250) = 0.00246 Molarity of HCl = 0.00246 / (23.183 / 1000) = 0.1062 ~0.11M Titration II: Determination of the given sodium hydroxide solution Titrant (in burette): Hydrochloric acid Titrate (in Conical flask): 25.0cm3 of NaOH Indicator used: Methyl Orange Colour of indicator changed from: yellow to pink Titration No. 1(trial) 2 3 4 Final burette reading (cm3) 23.55 23.85 47.70 23.80 Initial burette reading (cm3) 0.00 0.00 23.85 0.00 Volume of titrant used (cm3) 23.55 23.85 23.85 23.8 Average volume: 23.83 cm3 Calculation: HCl(aq) + NaOH(aq) --> NaCl(aq) ...read more.

Conclusion

number of mole of CH3COOH(dil) = number of mole of NaOH = 0.00253 Molarity of CH3COOH(dil) = 0.00253 / (16.98 / 1000) = 0.1489999 Molarity of CH3COOH = (0.1489999)(250 / 25) = 1.489999 Number of mole of CH3COOH in commercial vinegar = (1.489999)(250/1000) = 0.3725 Mass of CH3COOH in commercial vinegar = (0.3725)[(2)(12.0107)+(4)(1.00794)+(2)(15.9994)] = 22.369 The percentage of CH3COOH in commercial vinegar = (22.369 / 250)(100%) = 8.948 ~ 8.95% Conclusion: We prepared standard solution 0.05M NaOH. Through the titration I, we know that the molarity of HCl was 0.11M. In the titration II, we determinate NaOH solution is 0.1012M. At the titration III, we found out the molarity of diluted commercial vinegar is ~0.15M and also calculation out the original vinegar was ~1.49M. In calculation, we found out there are 8.95% ethanoic acid in commercial vinegar. ...read more.
