(Making sure you pour it up to exactly 0) 3. Get 25ml of Sodium hydroxide and pour it into the conical flask. 4. Add a few drops of Universal Indicator liquid to the sodium hydroxide. ...read more.

7. Keep doing this process in steps of 2cm until you reach you reach about 18cm. Then start letting out the hydrochloric solution in 1cms. And as the solution is near to turning green (Neutral) let the solution out in shorter measurements (i.e. 0.5cm) 8. Record the results and then repeat the whole process twice more.

    * At the same time the conical flask must be rapidly swirled around but making sure that it doesn't bump into the tap. * Look for any changes in the appearance of the Sodium Carbonate solution. * When there is a change in colour, lower the flow of acid solution from the burette tap.

    The reason I think this is because the ratio of the reaction is 1:1 so each sodium hydroxide particle joins together with each of the hydrochloric acid particle so this cancels them out to make it neutral. The particles in the sodium hydroxide are reaction in the ratio 1:1 this

    Also make sure that the meniscus line does not go over the graduation mark. 5. If necessary, add distilled water until the level is within 1cm of the mark on the neck of the volumetric flask. You can then use a dropping pipette to add enough distilled water to reach the bottom of the meniscus line.
