All users will need to review the risk assessment information and may need to adapt it to local circumstances. Titrate the contents of the flask against the sulfamic acid solution you have prepared. Prepare your apparatus for the titration. ● While conducting a titration remember to wash down the inside of the conical flask with distilled water from time to time. Sulfamic acid is a monoprotic acid. Calculate the concentration of your sulfamic acid solution.5 g of sulfamic acid in approximately 3 100 cm of water in a beaker. 3. The Mr of sulfamic acid is 97. Why should the pipette be rinsed with the sodium hydroxide solution after washing it with water? 4. including the washings. Calculate the mean titre using your concordant results. ● If you need to scale up to find the number of moles in the full volume of solution in the volumetric flask.6 cm3.0 cm aliquot of sodium hydroxide solution of unknown concentration into the 3 250 cm conical flask. A 250 cm3 volumetric flask has an accuracy of +/– 0. into a 250 cm volumetric flask and make the solution up to the mark with deionised water. One mole of sulfamic acid will react exactly with one mole of sodium hydroxide. © Pearson Education Ltd 2015 This document may have been altered from the original 2 . Why is there no need to dry the conical flask after washing it out between trials? 5. Burette 3 readings should be recorded to the nearest 0. Each burette reading is accurate to +/– 0. 2. Calculate the number of moles of sulfamic acid in your mean titre. Add four drops of methyl orange indicator to the conical flask. 6. Calculate the concentration of the sodium hydroxide solution used. 4.
