Determining the amount of a particular substance in a sample or product is a common task in analytical chemistry. If the product contains a substance that can be oxidized, then it is possible to determine the number of moles of that substance by titrating the sample with a strong oxidizing agent. In this lab, an oxidizing solution will be standardized and then used to determine the number of moles of oxalic acid.
