Experiments

Here are experiments our science specialists have selected to support the IB* topic.

Recommended

Acid-Base Titration

Experiment #7 from Advanced Chemistry with Vernier

In this experiment, you will

  • Accurately conduct acid-base titrations.
  • Determine the equivalence point of a strong acid-strong base titration.
  • Determine the equivalence point of a weak acid-strong base titration.
  • Calculate the molar concentrations of two acid solutions.

Recommended

Titration Curves of Strong and Weak Acids and Bases

Experiment #23 from Chemistry with Vernier

In this experiment, you will

  • Observe differences in shapes of titration curves when various strengths of acids and bases are combined.
  • Learn about the function and selection of appropriate acid-base indicators.
  • Learn how to interpret the shape of a titration curve.

Acid-Base Titration

Experiment #24 from Chemistry with Vernier

In this experiment, you will

  • Use a pH Sensor to monitor changes in pH as sodium hydroxide solution is added to a hydrochloric acid solution.
  • Plot a graph of pH vs. volume of sodium hydroxide solution added.
  • Use the graph to determine the equivalence point of the titration.
  • Use the results to calculate the concentration of the hydrochloric acid solution.

Acid-Base Titrations

Experiment #17 from Investigating Chemistry through Inquiry

In the Preliminary Activity, you will titrate a solution of the strong acid hydrochloric acid, HCl, with a solution of the strong base sodium hydroxide, NaOH. The concentration of the NaOH solution is given and you will determine the unknown concentration of the HCl.

After completing the Preliminary Activity, you will first use reference sources to find out more about acids, bases, and acid-base titrations before you choose and investigate a researchable question utilizing acid-base titrations.
