Calculate the concentration of a solution of HCl if a 25.00 mL sample required 24.87 mL of 0.1014 M NaOH to titrate to the endpoint.
Balanced equation is
NaOH + HCl -----> NaCl + H2O
molarity of NaOH = number of moles of NaOH / volume of solution in L
0.1014 M = number of moles of NaOH / 0.02487 L
number of moles of NaOH = 0.1014 * 0.02487 = 0.002522 mole
from the balanced equation we can say that
1 mole of NaOH requires 1 mole of HCl so
0.002522 mole of NaOH will require 0.002522 mole of HCl
molarity of HCl = number of moles of HCl / volume of solution in L
molarity of HCl = 0.002522 / 0.025 = 0.101 M
Therefore, the concentration of HCl = 0.101 M
