Hi there,

I am asked to calculate for the millimoles of acetic acid in a sample for a lab (Determination of the molar mass and ionization constant of a weak acid) this lab was performed with titration of 0.10 M NaOH into a 30.615g of acetic acid.

Measured pH of the acetic acid sol’n

Trial 1

Mass of acetic acid sol’n taken for the tritation

30.615g

Initial buret reading of NaOH tritrant

0.00ml

Final buret reading of NaOH tritrant

12.6ml

Net vol. of NaOh

12.6ml

Millimoles of acetic acid in sample

1.27ml

Molar [acetic acid sol’n]

Calculated molar mass of acetic acid

Chemical Equation: CH3COOH + NaOH -> CH3COONa + H2O

Trial1: millimoles of NaOH to endpoint of tritration:

0.1009M NaOH   12.6ml

0.1009M NaOH/ 1ml * 12.6 ml = 1.27134mmol = 1.27 mmol NaOH

Reasoning:

1mmol HC2H3O2 / 1mmol NaOH = 1.27 mmol, Because the mmol of NaOH is 1.27 mmol NaOH and there is a 1 to 1 ratio between HC2H3O2

Millimoles of acetic acid in sample:

30.615g CH3COOH * 1 mole CH3COOH/ 60.6g * 1000mmol CH3COOH/ 1 moleCh3COOH = 509.7 mmol CH3COOH

I am unsure of what value to use as the millimoles of acetic acid.

Answer #1

ANSWER-

Consider the following reaction-

CH3COOH + NaOH -> CH3COONa + H2O

Trial-1

mmoles of NaOH to endpoint of tritration= volume of NaOH used x Molarity

=12.6 ml x0.10 M

=1.26 mmol NaOH

from the above given equation of titration ,

it is clear that one mole of CH3COOH require 1 mole of NaOH for nuetralisation

So, no of mmol of CH3COOH used ( in the titration )= 1.26 mmol of CH3COOH

actual no of moles acetic acid present in the solution = mass of the substance / molar mass

=30.615/60.05

=0.5098 moles

=509.82 mmoles of CH3COOH   

after titration,

no of mmoles of CH3COOH left =(509.82-1.26)

=508.56 mmol CH3COOH

Note- 508.56 mmol CH3COOH can be further used fo find out ionisation constant and molarity etc by knowing the volume in which this acetic acid present.
