Extracts from this document...


Name : AMirul SYafiq Title : Standardization of hydrochloric acid using sodium carbonate. Variables : a) dependant : Volume of hydrochloric acid. b) independant : The colour of the solution. Results : 1) Preparation of the dilute HCl. a) Rough molarities:11M b) Volume in the measuring cylinder : 2.0 + 0.1cm³ c) Volume in the volumetric flask : 250 + 0.25cm³ 2) Preparation of the Na2CO3 solution. a) Mass of pure Na2CO3 : 1.329 + 0.0001g b) Volume in the volumetric flask : 250 + 0.25 cm³ c) ...read more.


3 Uncertainty : | 20.5-20.7 | + | 20.5-20.6 | + | 20.5-20.2 | x 100 = 2.9% 20.5 Gross volume of HCl used with percentage of uncertainty = 20.50 cm³ + 2.9% cm³. The molarities of HCl after dilution : M1V1 = M2V2 (2mL) (11M) = (X) (250mL) X = 0.088 M Uncertainty : V1 = 2.0 mL + 0.5 mL V2 = 250.0 mL + 0.5 mL = 0.5 x 100% = 0.5 x 100% 2.0 250.0 = 25 % = 0.2 % Then, add together to form general uncertainty = 25 % + 0.2 % = 25.2 %. ...read more.


of moles Volume 0.0125 = 0.05 M. 0.25 In this reaction, limiting reagent = Na2CO3 Theoretical moles of Na2CO3 solution : Moles = Volume x Molarities = (25cm³) (0.088M) 1000 = 0.0022 mole. Actual moles of Na2CO3 used when titration : Moles = 0.088 2 = 0.044 mole. So the theoretical volume of HCl needed to react with 0.025 mole of Na2CO3 : MV of Na2CO3 = (0.05) (25) = 1.25 (2M) = 2.5 . 1000 = 28.41 cm³. Percentage error : 28.41cm³-20.5cm³ x 100% = 27.8423% 28.41cm³ Conclusion : The actual volume of HCl needed to neutralize the Na2CO3 is 28.41cm³ for the titration. ...read more.

    + Na+(aq) + Cl-(aq) H+(aq) + OH-(aq) --> H2O(l) The first equation displays the reaction between the strong acid and strong base. The second reaction displays the HCl and NaOH dissociated in their respective ions. The last equation is known as the net ionic equation which eliminates the spectator ions from the previous equation.

    * Qualitative observations: * One qualitative observation is the colour of precipitate. I observe that the colour of sulfur after the cross disappears does vary, in respect of the difference in the concentration of sodium thiosulfate. The observation is, the higher the concentration of sodium thiosulfate is, the darker the yellow precipitate gets.
