A series of collaborative learning activities and accompanying text that develop chemical equilibrium, including acid-base chemistry, formation of water-soluble complexes, and solubility are provided. These activities are intended to be done in class by students working in groups, but can be modified for use as out-of-class exercises. Learning objectives, an instructorâ€™s manual, and out-of-class problems are…

Students calculate the pH during the titration of a weak base. A text to accompany the worksheet is also provided.

Introduction
This learning module introduces students to acid-base titrimetry at a level suitable for an introductory course in analytical chemistry. The module assumes students are comfortable with stoichiometric calculations, particularly as they apply to acid-base reactions, that they are familiar with the general shape of a titration curve, and that they appreciate the difference between a…

Students explore titrations of weak acids and based using a titration simulator.

Students will learn to:
List and describe the factors/parameters that affect the shape of acid-base titration curves
Predict and explain why the change occurs when each of these factors/parameters is adjusted
Calculate the pH of solution and articulate its correlation to any point on…

Students use an acid-base titration simulator to explore the effect of different variables.

Students will learn 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
…

Students examine the titration of monoprotic and polyprotic systems when completing this activity.

Students examine the titration of a weak acid when completing this activity.

Students learn to:
Use basic output from an analytical tool (buret) to calibrate that tool.
Use data to perform error analysis (identify the presence of random and/or systematic errors).
Standardize a sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solution using titration of potassium hydrogen phthalate (KHP) using a calibrated buret.
Report the determined concentration of the standardized NaOH solution.
Communicate…
