Attach a buret clamp (located under the hood) to a ring stand. b. Rinse the burets three times with approximately 10 ml of deionized water. Tilt and rotate the buret in an almost horizontal position (don't let the water spillout!) to rinse the entire inside wall. Allow about 5 ml of water to run through the buret tip on the last rinse. c. Pre-rinse one buret with approximately 5 ml of your Unknown acid solution. Again, rotate the buret to rinse the entire inside wall of the buret as above. d. Clamp the buret in one side of the buret clamp. Place a white piece of paper labeled "Unknown acid" under this buret. Drain any remaining pre-rinse acid solution into a beaker labeled "waste solution". e. Fill this buret with your Unknown acid solution to the zero mark or slightly below it (Not above the zero mark). Make sure the tip of the buret is completely filled and contains no air bubbles. f. Pre-rinse the second buret with approximately 5 ml of standard base solution. Clamp the buret in the other side of the buret clamp. Place a white piece of paper labeled "Standard NaOH solution" under the buret. Drain remaining prerinse NaOH solution into the waste solution beaker. Fill this buret with standard
3.) Divide your 30g of white substance into the 4 test tubes evenly. You should put 7.5g into each test tube along with the water.
I am going to use a range of concentrations to enable me to get a good
Repeat for each trial. Rinse volumetric pipette with vinegar and drain into the waste beaker. Weigh and record the mass of each 200mL beaker. Add 10.00mL of vinegar into each beaker and weigh them and record their again. Add 50mL of de-ionized water to the beakers and place them under the drop counter on top of a stir plate, submerging the pH meter into the solution. Place the stir bar into the beaker and carefully turn on the stir plate so that the stir bar spins without splashing or hitting the sides of the beaker or the pH
Add 15mL of 6N sulfuric acid to a 125mL Erlenmeyer flask containing 105mL of deionized water (preparing approximately 0.75N sulfuric acid). Obtain a sample of the unknown. Weight the vial and contents accurately on an analytical balance. Handle the vial with a small strip of paper to reduce the risk of error (due to added weight). Pour about half of the sample into a clean dry 200mL Erlenmeyer flask and weight again. Use the remaining half of the sample to get a second weight of around 0.6g-0.7g. Make sure the vial is capped on every weight taken.
Method: First I will put 2ml starch in a test tube then I will add a
