 # An overview of the process of titration

• In general you will always want to use the following procedures;
• Titrations are done using a buret, which is a long, calibrated glass tube, with some type of valve often a teflon stopcock, or a rubber tube with a pinch clamp.

Working to learn Plot the titration curve on a graph based on the data. Answer the following questions.

## Carrying Out A Titration

What formula is used to calculate pH? Why does pH change rapidly at the equivalent point? Sketch titration curves when the concentrations of both acids and bases are 0. What can you conclude from these sketches? Well, when you have acquired the skill to calculate the pH at any point during titration, you may write a simulation program to plot the titration curve. However, we are interested in this area and some simulation programs are available on the internet. Yue-Ling Wong has given a Java interactive titration simulation. His website is rather fun to play with and it is nicely done.

Using a computer we are able to simulate the titrations of weak acids and strong bases, or strong acids and weak bases.

Calculation of pH in the titration of weak acids with weak bases is more difficult. However, let the complexity bother you no more, since you can simply have fun testing the computer model.

1. Carrying Out A Titration A titration is a process in which a measured volume of a solution is added to a reaction mixture until some observable property has changed.
2. Yue-Ling Wong has given a Java interactive titration simulation. This is best done by swirling the erlenmeyer gently with one hand while using the other to manipulate the buret.
3. Proper cleaning technique for glassware is generally to.

In a titration experiment, the amount to add from the buret depends on the condition at the time. At the start, you may add large amount before observing much pH change, but when the titration is at its end or equivalent point, you would like to ad the titrant slowly.

In the simulation, you control the rate of titration. While trying the Java simulation of titration, please answer the following questions.

• But, from the equivalence of molacid and molbase equation  , if we substitute in from equations  and , this means that any of the following relationships are also true;

• Answer the following questions.

Identify the buffer area on the titration curve. In the titration of weak acids, why does the pH change quickly at the beginning? Confidence Building Questions What are the pH of solutions of 10, 1. No calculators should be used. Do not forget the dilution factor. This is only a theoretical value. Most students usually forget the salt resulting from the titration. What is the pH of the above solution when half of the acid is neutralized by NaOH in the titration? At this point, the solution is a very good buffer.

1. Titrations are done using a buret, which is a long, calibrated glass tube, with some type of valve often a teflon stopcock, or a rubber tube with a pinch clamp. This allows you to tell from a color change when the reaction has reached its endpoint.
2. A monoprotic acid or base is one that contains one ionizable proton or hydroxide ion.
3. What formula is used to calculate pH?
4. Identify the buffer area on the titration curve.

What is the pH of the end point or equivalent point when 1. What is the concentration of the acetate ion? You have doubled the volume in this case, and the concentration is 0.
