The experiment is conducted to achieve main objective, whichis to identify the unknown monoprotic acid by comparing thecalculated average Ka values from the data obtained from thisexperiment with the Ka values of some common acids found in ageneral chemistry book.
n order to get the Ka values for theunknown acid, it can be obtained by performing titration processbased on the pH value. Besides that, the Ka value can also bedetermined by using the initial pH of the unknown monoprotic acid.
n this experiment, we will be dealing with monoprotic acid.Based on Brønsted and Lowry, an acid is a proton donor whereas abase is a proton acceptor. This portrays a very important idea tounderstanding monoprotic and polyprotic acids and bases sincemonoprotic, as a matter of fact, is basically referred to the transfer of one proton. On the contrary, polyprotic corresponds to thetransfer of more than one proton. Therefore, monoprotic acid is anacid that can donate one proton while polyprotic acid is an acid thatcan donate more than one proton. To be more precise, monoprotic
