Titration Lab 20C Reflection

The titration lab which we performed in our class was a lab which I found very interesting, yet considerably challenging at the same time. In this lab, we were required to do a titration between NaOH (Sodium Hydroxide) and HCl (Hydrochloric Acid). I found it more challenging due to the increased precision of the amount of the chemicals used, as my partner and I quickly realized that even a slight over/under application of a solution could negatively affect the accuracy of our results. As a result, it was imperative that we communicated clearly during the lab. I showed this attribute throughout this lab, asking my partner questions when necessary and splitting the work evenly. I also actively demonstrated that I can make effective judgements and decisions based on evidence.
