The purpose of this experiment is to determine the molar concentration of a strong acid by taking a strong base of known concentration and titrating measured volumes with it. The sodium hydroxide solution from the previous lab will be used in this experiment as well.
Through titrations, the concentration of reactants can be determined. In this lab, the titration between a strong acid and a strong base will take place. In a titration, the titrant is used to react with the analyte. A neutralization reaction will take place, and the product of the reaction will be water. One reactant will neutralize the other.
