3 Titration problemsWhat volume of 0.10 mol/L NaOH is needed to neutralize 25.0 mL of 0.15 mol/L H3PO4?25.0 mL of HCl(aq) was neutralized by 40.0 mL of 0.10 mol/L Ca(OH)2 solution. What was the concentration of HCl?A truck carrying sulfuric acid is in an accident. A laboratory analyzes a sample of the spilled acid and finds that 20 mL of acid is neutral-ized by 60 mL of 4.0 mol/L NaOH solution. What is the concentration of the acid?What volume of 1.50 mol/L H2S will neutral-ize a solution containing 32.0 g NaOH?
5 Titration summary For titrations we use the formula: #H x MA x VA = #OH x MB x VBOr NA x VA = NB x VBNA is the combination of MA and #HN is also known as normalityYou can think of it a neutralizing powerWe will stick with the first equation, you do not have to know N or what it stands forThis is a simplification of stoichiometry. We could get the same answer by working with moles (n = MV) and by using the balanced chemical equation
6 Titration showdownTitration competition (best with a burette): find the concentration of an H2SO4 solution – it could be anywhere from 0-18 mol/LYou will use the NaOH that you prepared two weeks ago and your vast knowledge of titration procedures and formulas.The wining team, is the team closest to the correct value.The only restriction is : don’t put base in the burette – only acid.
