Study Sheet: AcidBase Titration Problems
Tipoff
You are given the volume of a solution of an acid
or base (the titrant solution #1) necessary to react completely with a given
volume of solution being titrated (solution #2). You are also given the
molarity of the titrant (solution #1). You are asked to calculate the
molarity of solution #2. General
Procedure
The first conversion factor is used only when you are not given
liters of #2. (Because you are usually given milliliters, you may instead need
to use a conversion factor that converts from milliliters to liters.)
The second conversion factor is used only when you are not given
either milliliters or liters of #1. (You are usually given milliliters, so if
your molarity conversion factor is in the form that includes 10^{3} mL #1
soln,
this conversion factor is not necessary.)
The coefficients in the final conversion factor come from the
balanced equation for the reaction.
Complete the calculation in the usual way.
