F.6/7 Chemistry Practical: Thermometric Titration
(a) To perform a thermometric titration in order to determine the enthalpy change of a reaction; (b) To evaluate enthalpy of neutralization for a strong acid and strong base and for a weak acid and a strong base
Group size: Individual
In thermometric titration we make use of the fact that reactions in solution are accompanied by temperature changes. For example, the neutralization reaction of hydrochloric acid and sodium hydroxide is an exothermic reaction.
NaOH(aq) +HCl(aq) NaCl(aq) + H2O Hneut: negative
The purpose of this experiment is to determine the concentration of two acids, hydrochloric acid, HCl, and ethanoic acid, CH3COOH in turn with a standardized solution of sodium hydroxide and record the temperatures of the mixtures during the course of the titration. In each case a plot of temperature against time will enable you to determine the maximum temperature rise, from which you calculate both the concentration of the acid and the enthalpy change of neutralization.
Theory: Give principle/reason to explain how do you determine the concentration of hydrochloric acid and ethanoic acid by titrating with standardized sodium hydroxide and thermometric measurement is used. The following questions should be useful to you. 1. Define the term 'standard molar enthalpy of neutralization'. 2. Give an ionic equation for neutralization reactions. 3. Define the terms 'strong acid' and 'weak acid'. 4. The enthalpy change of neutralization for a very dilute strong acid reacting with a very dilute strong base is constant at -57.6 kJ mol-1. Why is the value constant? 5. Consider the titration of an acid…...

...points. The Group 1 Alkali Metals, and to a less extent, Group 2 oxides, dissolve in water to form alkali solutions. All of them react with , and neutralise acids to form salts. o As you move left to right the oxides become less basic and more acidic. o So on the right you have the acidic oxides of the non-metals CO2, P2O5, SO2, SO3 etc. These tend to be covalent in bonding character with low melting/boiling points. Those of sulphur and phosphorus are very soluble in water to give acidic solutions which can be neutralised by alkalis to form salts. o These oxides are another example of the change from metallic element to non-metallic element chemical behaviour from left to right across the Periodic Table. o BUT life is never that simple in chemistry!:  Some oxides react with both acids and alkalis and are called amphoteric oxides. They are usually relatively insoluble and have little effect on indicators. An example is aluminium oxide dissolves in acids to form 'normal' aluminium salts like the chloride, sulphate and nitrate. However, it also dissolves in strong alkali's like sodium hydroxide solution to form 'aluminate' salts. This could be considered as 'intermediate' basic-acidic character in the Periodic Table.  Some oxides are neutral, tend to be of low solubility in water and have no effect on litmus, and do not react with acids or alkalis. eg CO 5 carbon monoxide (note that CO2 carbon dioxide is weakly acidic) and NO nitrogen monoxide (note......

Titration Lab Report

...Lab Report 2 – Titration CHEM1903 – Chemistry 1A (SSP) Michael West (305159240) 1. Experiment 2.2 – Titrimetric determination of the molecular mass of an organic acid Method An unknown organic acid was supplied in solid form. The acid was known to be diprotic and had the reference number 19. Using an analytical balance, 1.5397 g of the acid were weighed out, and made up with deionised water into 250 mL of solution. 25 mL of the acid solution was added to a conical flask with phenolphthalein indicator and titrated against standardized 0.0983 M NaOH solution. Three titrations were performed and the results averaged. The molar mass of the acid was then calculated and compared to a list of given possibilities. Results and Calculations The three titres were 26.30 mL, 26.50 mL and 26.30 mL. The mean titre volume was hence 26.37 mL. The number of moles of NaOH was thus moles. Because the acid was diprotic, reaction stoichiometry dictates that there was one mole of acid for every two moles of NaOH. Accordingly, in 25 mL of the acid solution, there were moles of acid. The molar mass of the acid is then g⋅mol-1. This matches most closely with succinic acid, for which the given molar mass was 118.1 g⋅mol-1. Although this represents a 0.6% discrepancy, the error is small enough to identify the acid as succinic acid with a high degree of certainty, given the possibilities listed. 2.

...(4) Acid-base Titration using Method of Double Indicators Student Handout Purposes To determine the composition of the following mixture by double indicator method: 1. NaOH(aq) and Na2CO3(aq) 2. NaHCO3(aq) and Na2CO3(aq) Introduction Consider a mixture of NaOH(aq) and Na2CO3(aq). Reaction between HCl(aq) and Na2CO3(aq) takes place in two stages: HCl(aq) + Na2CO3(aq) ⎯→ NaHCO3(aq) + H2O(l) …………………. (1) HCl(aq) + NaHCO3(aq) ⎯→ NaCl(aq) + CO2(g) + H2O(l) …………. (2) While that between HCl(aq) and NaOH(aq) completes in only one step: HCl(aq) + NaOH(aq) ⎯→ NaCl(aq) + H2O(l) ……………….………. (3) Solution mixture of reaction (1) at the equivalence point is alkaline, that of reaction (2) is acidic and that of reaction (3) is neutral. Thus the whole titration should have three breaks in the pH curve, corresponding to the above three stages. Reactions (1) and (3) can be indicated by phenolphthalein and that of reaction (2) can be indicated by methyl orange. Stoichiometry confines each of the above pH reactions to react according to a mole ratio of 1 : 1. This means, say from equation (2), the number of mole of HCl(aq) determined from the methyl orange titration is equal to the number of mole of NaHCO3(aq). Likewise, total number of moles of NaOH(aq) and Na2CO3(aq) in the solution mixture can be calculated according to the volumes of HCl(aq) added at the end point Vol. of HCl indicated by the colour change of the phenolphthalein indicator.

Titration Revisted

...Titrations Revisited By Drew Rutherford Concordia College Introduction The first experiment today will be the titration of acetic acid in vinegar. Vinegar is a solution of acetic acid, an organic acid of formula CH3COOH (MW = 60.0526 g/mole). In order to be sold as vinegar, it needs to meet the FDA’s guideline of 5.00% acetic acid by mass. Knowing that the density of vinegar is 1.04 g/mL and analyzing this solution by titration, chemists can determine the mass percentage of acetic acid in a sample of vinegar. The titration reaction is given below: CH3COOH + NaOH ( CH3COONa + H2O Reaction 1 A customer has purchased a vinegar solution at a local thrift store at a 20% discount and he believes that the sample of vinegar he has purchased does not meet FDA regulations. He is suing the thrift store for the $0.36 he feels that he has been cheated out of. The court has asked you to analyze the sample and render your verdict. Does this sample conform to the FDA guideline? If 2.00 mL of the thrift store vinegar required 9.73 mL of 0.150 M NaOH to reach the endpoint, then 0.00877 g of acetic acid was present. 9.73 mL NaOH x 1 liter NaOH x 0.150 mole NaOH x 1 mole CH3COOH x 60.0526 g CH3COOH 1000 mL 1 liter 1 moles NaOH 1 mole CH3COOH = 0.0876 grams CH3COOH in sample 2.00 mL vinegar x 1.04 g vinegar = 2.08 g vinegar 1 mL 0.0876 g CH3COOH x 100 = 4.21 % CH3COOH by mass 2...

Titration Analysis of Commercial Bleach

...Titration Analysis of Commercial Bleach Introduction In order to determine the percentage of sodium hypochlorite in two different commercial bleaches and compare the relative effectiveness of the two bleaches a titration procedure will be used. Titration is a procedure for determining an unknown concentration of a solute using a reaction with a second solution with a known concentration. Commercial bleaches contain sodium hypochlorite. This is the active ingredient. In experiment 7 we demonstrated the ability to do a titration procedure to determine the sodium hypochlorite percentage in two commercial bleaches. Once we figured the two percentages we compared them to see which was the strongest. To determine the amount of NaClO in each solution we had to perform two successive oxidation reduction reactions. For the experiment to have been successful NaClO(aq)+2NaI(aq)+2HC2H3O2(aq)→I2(aq)+NaCl(aq)+2NaC2H3O2(aq)+H2O(l) needed to become colorless shown as: I2(aq)+2Na2S2O3(aq)→Na2S4O6(aq)+2NaI(aq). Before beginning, we thought the second bleach would be stronger. Methods and Materials 1. First, we gathered all of the materials, which included: * Buret Clamp * Buret * Ring Stand * Small Funnel * Beaker for collecting waste materials * 125 mL Erlenmeyer flask 2. Then we rinsed the buret with 10 mL of 0.100 M sodium thiosulfate (Na2S2O3), using the small funnel, to clean the buret. The sodium thiosulfate was discarded into the waste beaker. 3. ......

...concentration equal to 8.4 mg/l. The DO test involves three stages, collecting the sample, fixing or stabilizing the sample, and titrating the sample to determine a DO value. Once the water sample is fixed, contact between the water sample and the atmosphere will not affect the test result, so it is not necessary to perform the titration procedure immediately. Titrating the sample involves the addition of several chemicals to the fixed sample resulting in a DO value. Using this method, several samples can be collected, fixed in the field, and then carried back to a testing station or laboratory for titration. Fixed samples should be stored in the dark and away from hot or very cold temperatures. Titration should be completed no longer than 4 hours following fixation. 3 Texas Watch Newsletter Academic Question(s): 1. What changes dissolved oxygen amounts in waterways? 2.

Titration Lab

...Elijah Kim Mrs. Dobler Course 2 2/10/15 Titration lab Titration is used to find the specific amount of a standard solution in an amount of unknown liquid. Titration in this lab is performed with the chemical reactions between acids and liquids. During titration, we have to stop at the point where stoichiometric amounts of acids and bases are reacting. We can find that point by looking for indicators, for example in this lab the indicators were changes in color. So the purpose of all this is to determine the concentration of some acid solutions. 1. Measure 10 mL of your acid solution using graduated cylinder and and it to the Erlenmeyer flask 2. Add about 25 mL of distilled water to the flask 3. Place your Erlenmeyer flask under the buret and a white piece of paper under you Erlenmeyer flask 4. Record the initial buret reading 5.

...EXPERIMENT 5 REDOX TITRATION: TITRATION USING SODIUM THIOSULPHATE Objectives 1. To prepare a standard solution of potassium iodate for use to determine the concentration of sodium thiosulphate solution accurately. 2. To acquire the proper techniques of carrying out a titration. Introduction Redox titrations using sodium thiosulphate as a reducing agent is known as iodometric titration since it is used specifically to titrate iodine. The reaction involved is: I2 + 2Na2S2O3 2NaI + Na2S4O6 I2 + 2S2O32- 2I- + S4O62- In this equation I2 has been reduced to I- :2S2O32- S4O62- + 2e I2 + 2e 2I- The iodine/thiosulphate titration is a general method for determining the concentration of an oxidising agent solution. A known volume of an oxidising agent is added into an excess solution of acidified potassium iodide. The reaction will release iodine:Example: (a) With KMnO4 2MnO4- + 16H+ + 10I- 2Mn2+ + 5I2 + 8H2O (b) With KIO3 IO3- + 5I- + 6H+ 3I2 + 3H2O The iodine that is released is titrated against a standard thiosulphate solution. From the stoichiometry of the reaction, the amount of iodine can be determined and from this, the concentration of the oxidising agent which released the iodine, can be calculated. In an iodometric titration, a starch solution is used as an indicator as it can absorb the iodine that is released. This absorption will cause the solution to change to a dark blue colour. When this dark......

Explain your answer in a few sentences. 5) Explain the difference between an endpoint and equivalence point in a titration. Solutions to the Titrations Practice Worksheet For questions 1 and 2, the units for your final answer should be “M”, or “molar”, because you’re trying to find the molarity of the acid or base solution. To solve these problems, use M1V1 = M2V2 . 1) 0.043 M HCl 2) 0.0036 M NaOH For problem 3, you need to divide your final answer by two, because H2SO4 is a diprotic acid, meaning that there are two acidic hydrogens that need to be neutralized during the titration. As a result, it takes twice as much base to neutralize it, making the concentration of the acid appear twice as large as it really is. 3) 0.1 M H2SO4 4) You cannot do a titration without knowing the molarity of at......

Indigestion and Titration: an Acid-Base Titration

...SC155 - INTRO TO CHEMISTRY: MATTER AND EQUILIBRIUM Indigestion and Titration: An Acid-Base Titration Imagine yourself as the Lead Analytical Chemist at Kaplan Industries. Your first big assignment is to investigate the strength of several commercial antacids for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). They have sent five antacids to be tested with a back-titration that works as follows: • • • First, each antacid tablet is mixed with 40 mL of 0.1 M HCl—this acidic solution is the same stuff that is in stomach acid, and one antacid pill is nowhere near enough to neutralize all 40 mL of the acid. So, to see how much extra help each antacid pill needs to neutralize 40 mL of 0.1 M HCL, you add 0.05 M NaOH drop-by-drop to back-titrate the solution until the pH is neutral. What this means is that, the stronger the antacid tablet, the less NaOH it will take to help bring the acid to neutral. (In other words, the stronger antacid tablets counteract more of the original HCl, leaving the solution closer to neutral before the NaOH is added.) Here are your results: Maalox Mass of one dose antacid mL NaOH used in backtitration 20.0 g Tums 21.0 g Mylanta 18.0 g CVS brand 18.3 g Rennies 17.5 g 24.1 mL 22.4 mL 20.0 mL 19.9 mL 24.4 mL 1.

When people do back titrations, they usually......
