Product Details

Most products we use every day, including food, beverages, medication and cleaning solutions, have acidic and basic properties! A common question chemists have to answer is how much of a specific acid or base is present in a product. In this lab, the concentration of an acid in a sample is determined by a titration. The lab begins with preparing and then standardizing the sodium hydroxide solution. Once the concentration of the base is known, students are then challenged to identify the concentration of a sample of hydrochloric acid. Use this colorful and engaging activity to help teach acid–base titration!

Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
