Flashcards in Experiment 2: Volumetric Analysis Deck (5)
A unit of concentration.
It is the concentration of a substance as measured by the number of moles divided by the volume of the solution it is in.
Define equivalence point
The point at which an acid and base have reacted so that neither is in excess
When is it possible to get the same equivalence point as the end point?
In the absence of human error during the conducting of the titration (I.e. no measurement errors are made during the titration) and an ideal titration is performed, resulting in the volume of the acid reacting exactly with the base
Why do you weigh by difference
Most accurate method to quantitatively measure the mass of a solid sample.
This method also accounts for material sticking to the original container, increasing the accuracy of the results
