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…

Use of Glassware

After completing this activity, students will be able to: Choose the appropriate piece of glassware to ensure the desired level of precision of a particular solution. Compare the tolerance of various pieces of glassware.
