Titrations

Titration is also known as titrimetry and it is a common method of quantitative chemicals analysis that is used to determine the unknown concentration of an identified analyte. The point of the lab was to titrate a hydrochloric acid solution of unknown concentration with sodium hydroxide and to utilize the titration date to calculate the molarity of the hydrochloric acid. This is what the titration was used for in this lab. The endpoint of a titration is when the indicator changes colour. We knew that we reached the end point because the liquid when from clear to a faint pink that lasted for about thirty seconds. Our results were a very faint pink and the final volume of the NaOH was 14.92, the initial volume was 0.13 and the volume used was 14.79.

Communication:

I listened to instructions in order to know the steps and what to properly do in order to complete the lab successfully. My partner and I communicated well, shared ideas and thoughts about each step before we did anything. We discussed what we would do before we did anything to ensure that there would be no errors made. We made sure to correct each other when it came to measurements or technique within the lab. We could easily ask each other to help with anything such as handing over a tool, wiping something with paper towel, or simply just adjusting the clamp.
