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 cm� + 2.9% cm�. 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.

Conclusion

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 = (25cm�) (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 cm�. Percentage error : 28.41cm�-20.5cm� x 100% = 27.8423% 28.41cm� Conclusion : The actual volume of HCl needed to neutralize the Na2CO3 is 28.41cm� for the titration. ...read more.
