Student Behavioral Objectives
The student will:
- explain what an acid/base indicator is.
- explain how acid-base indicators work.
- explain the difference between natural and synthetic indicators.
- explain how indicators are used in the lab.
- explain what a titration is.
- describe how titrations can be used to determine the concentration of an acid or a base in solution.
- explain the difference between the equivalence point and the end point.
- define a standard solution in terms of acid-base titrations.
- calculate the concentration of an acid or base solution using a standard solution.
- calculate the concentration of unknown acid or base when given the concentration of the other and the volume needed to reach the equivalence point in a titration.
