Acid-Base Titration Experiment

The acid-base titration experiment was a two week process. To begin the first week, a buret reading quiz was taken by each member of the group. When taking the quiz, it was recognized that 50 mL burrets can be measured to the nearest 0.01 mL (burrets are read from top to bottom). After the test was taken, a TA or the professor verified the accuracy of the reading. After testing the burret reading, the next step was to start the experiment by preparing approximately 0.1 M NaOH solution. First calculate the amount of 6.0 M NaOH stock solution needed to prepare 500 mL of 0.1 M NaOH solution. A 10.00-mL graduated cylinder was used to measure the the calculated amount of 6.0 M NaOH, and then filled to the top with deionized water. The 10.00 mL was then poured into a 500 mL plastic bottle. The 10.00 mL graduated cylinder was refilled with deionized water and was poured into the same 500 mL plastic bottle. Using a 50 mL graduated cylinder, the remaining 480.0 mL of deionized water was added to the 500 mL plastic bottle. The lid was secured over the bottle and the contents were then shaken thoroughly. A piece of tape was placed onto the bottle with the groups names, and space for the concentration of NaOH and standard deviation to be written at the end of the experiment. After 0.1 M NaOH solution was prepared, the next step is to standardize the NaOH solution by using titration. To begin, a buret was cleaned with soap and deionized water to insure that there was no
