Acid-base titrations

Chemical Equilibrium

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 instructor’s manual, and out-of-class problems are…
Acid Base Titration

Designing an Acid–Base Titration

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…

Acid-Base Titration Simulation

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…

Acid-Base Titrations

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 …

Buret Calibration and Standardization of NaOH Solution

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…
