Titration Lab

▪ A few sentences (1 to 3 max) describing


the purpose of the experiment

Ex: The purpose of this experiment is to determine


the resistance of an unknown resistor.

#2: Purpose

▪ Describes the scientific concepts which this


experiment will touch on

▪ In this experiment, your background information


section must include:
1. Description of acids and bases (one paragraph)
2. Explanation of acid base neutralization (one
#3: Background paragraph)
3. Explanation of chemical indicators (one
information paragraph)
4. Information about phenolphthalein and it’s pH
turning point (one paragraph)
▪ In-text citation for all concepts explained in your
background section is required! You will fail this
section if no citations are written.

Titration Lab

▪ In-text citation for all concepts


explained in your background section
is required! You will fail this section if
no citations are written.
▪ Your textbook must be one of the sources
#3: Background ▪ A reputable internet site (BBC Bitesize)
information (LibreTexts) (CK-12) can also be cited

▪ Prediction of the expected results of the


experiment
▪ Must have scientific justification to
support your prediction
Usually a detailed
paragraph

#4 Hypothesis Ex: Due to ohm’s law, which states that the resistance
is equal to the quotient of voltage over potential
difference, the resistance of the unknown resistor
will be the slope of the linear function formed
between voltage and potential difference.
Direction relation to
your purpose.

Look at the balanced chemical equation


for the neutralization of the acid and the
base

#4 Hypothesis Predict, based on the molar ratio, the


for this relative number of moles required to
neutralize HCl with NaOH
experiment

▪ List of materials used for the experiment


(copy from the lab handout)
▪ After list of materials, include the diagram
of the titration set up (either hand drawn
with annotations, or a picture of the set
up is taken, with annotations)
#5 Materials

SE 5 Formal Lab Report Guidelines for 21/02/2018
Titration Lab

▪ Step by step of what you did to carry out


the experiment
▪ Concise steps, no paragraphs
▪ Copy from the lab document given to you

#6 Procedure

▪ Here includes all of your data you


collected
▪ Data usually written in tables, with table
titles and all appropriate units
▪ For titration lab, you must copy the table
#7 Observations that is on the lab document handout

Your analysis will include:


▪ Answering analysis questions (See
attached word document)
▪ All stoich calculations can be hand
written

#8 Analysis

▪ Short paragraph answering the objective


of the lab, and agree/disagreeing with the
hypothesis

▪ Sources of error for the lab also need to


#9 Conclusion be included

▪ Any material that you reference for your lab


needs to be included in the bibliography

▪ Go to http://www.bibme.org/ to help with


your bibliography
