After completing this activity, students will be able to:

  • Determine the pH at any point throughout an acid-base titration including the titration of:
    • A strong acid with a strong base
    • A strong base with a strong acid
    • A weak acid with a strong base
    • A weak base with a strong acid
  • Describe the general nature of the solution in terms of how to calculate pH for the following regions of an acid-base titration:
    • Region I: before any titrant added
    • Region II: partway to the equivalence point
    • Region III: at the equivalence point
    • Region IV: past the equivalence point
  • Compare how concentration and strength of an acid or base changes the appearance of a titration curve.
