ACID-BASE Equilibria Experiments

By: Ludmila Novikova Section A: Conductimetry and the Strength of Acids and Bases: Goal: To understand how conductivity experiments work and to be able to identify strong and weak acids and bases via the use of equilibrium constants. Summary: In this section of the lab, Dr. Thompson carried out several experiments to show how certain substances allow the conductivity of electricity to occur. 1.)    The first experiment was one between sugars in water. There was a light bulb with a […]

Acid-Base Titrations: Standardization of NaOH and Antacid Analysis

Acid- Base Titrations By Julia Trimble   Introduction: A titration is a procedure in which two solutions are introduced to form a reaction that once completed, reaches an identifiable endpoint (Murphy, 2012, p.305).  During a titration, the volume of one reagent, the analyte, is predetermined while the other reagent, the titrant, is prepared in a buret and slowly introduced to the analyte solution.  The completion of this reaction can be determined via observation through the use of an indicator.  The […]
