Drawing an Acid-Base Titration Curve

This set of illustrations shows the steps for quickly sketching an good approximation of the titration curve for the titration of 50.0 mL of 0.100 M CH3COOH with 0.200 M NaOH: (a) determine the equivalence point volume—in this case 25 … Continue reading

Buret

A simple illustration of a typical volumetric buret. The stopcock is in the open position, allowing the titrant to flow into the titrand’s solution. Rotating the stopcock controls the titrant’s flow rate.

Thermometric Titration Curve

An acid-base reaction is exothermic, which means we can follow the titration by monitoring the titration mixture’s temperature as a function of the volume of titrant added. A typical thermometric titration curve is shown here. Prior to the equivalence point, … Continue reading

Complexation, Redox, and Precipitation Titration Curves

Examples of titration curves: (a) complexation titration of 25.0 mL of 1.0 mM Cd2+ with 1.0 mM EDTA at a pH of 10 in which the y-axis displays the titrand’s equilibrium concentration as pCd; (b) redox titration of 25.0 mL of … Continue reading

Strong Acid–Strong Base Titration Curve

Typical acid–base titration curve showing how the titrand’s pH changes with the addition of titrant. The titrand is a 25.0 mL solution of 0.100 M HCl and the titrant is 0.100 M NaOH. The titration curve is the solid blue … Continue reading
