Acid Base Titrations

Acid Base Titrations

This applet simulates the titration of a weak acid (in the beaker) with a strong base (in the burette). The pK of the acid is fixed. Base is added by pushing the stopcock button and the resulting pH is calculated and plotted. By finding the endpoint, we can determine the concentration of acid in the flask; we can also determine the pK of the acid by measuring the pH halfway to the endpoint....

The concept covered is correct from both a quantitative and qualitative standpoint. Seeing the pH of the solution change with indicator color, and on the plotted curve is impressive. The module is easy for students to follow along.
