Used for mixing liquids together – designed to prevent the splashing of liquids.

Acid – Base Titrations Not every substance can be prepared directly in a standard solution! Example: Hydrochloric acid is too volatile to make a standard solution directly – as soon as you open a bottle some escapes as a gas!

Preparing a standard solution of Hydrochloric acid
Hydrochloric acid can be standardised (its exact concentration can be found out) by reacting it with a a standard solution of sodium carbonate: Balanced equation: 2HCl + Na2CO3 2NaCl + H20 +CO2

Finding the unknown concentration:
You use the following equation: Volume of base reacted Molarity of acid Volume of acid reacted Molarity of base V1 X M1 = V2 x M2 n1 n2 Number of moles of base indicated in the balanced equation Number of moles of acid indicated in the balanced equation

Vinegar Titrations

Why is the vinegar diluted?
Diluting the vinegar reduces the volume of vinegar and the volume of sodium hydroxide solution needed in the experiment

Outline the correct procedure for bringing the solution in the volumetric flask precisely to the 250cm3 mark. rinse pipette (burette) with water // and then with vinegar // fill with pipette filler / have bottom of meniscus on calibration mark deliver 25 cm3 to 250 cm3 volumetric flask // add deionised (distilled, pure) water until level of water near mark // add dropwise (by dropper / by pipette / by wash bottle) // bring bottom of meniscus to (on, at) mark / vol. flask at eye-level (vertical) // stopper and invert several times / mix thoroughly / solution homogeneous (even concentration, same concentration throughout) ANY FIVE: (5 × 3)

Outline the procedure used in preparing the burette so that it is ready for the first titration.
Rinse the burette with deionised water, and then with diluted vinegar solution. Fill the burette with diluted vinegar solution above the zero mark. Remove the funnel. Using the tap at the base of the burette, allow the acid to flow into a beaker until the level of liquid is at the zero mark. Ensure that there are no air bubbles in the nozzle of the burette.

Give two other precautions which should be taken to ensure that the burette readings are accurate.
Make sure that the burette is clamped vertically. Read the level of liquid in the burette by noting the lower level of the meniscus at eye level.

Why is phenolphthalein used as the indicator in this titration?
Because this is a weak acid/strong base titration, phenolphthalein changes colour in the appropriate pH range.

Why is a rough titration carried out?
To find the approximate end-point. This information enables the subsequent titrations to be carried out more quickly.

Why are three accurate titrations carried out?
To reduce experimental error by calculating the average value.

What colour change happens at the end point?
The indicator changes colour from pink to colourless.
