Acid-Base Titration Computer Simulation

Acid-Base Titration Computer Simulation University of Oregon chemdemos web-site

An aqueous solution of a base is added to an aqueous solution of known concentration (amount = moles) until the chemical reaction is complete.  The exact volume of base is recorded. Knowing the balanced chemical equation provides sufficient information for one to calculate the Molarity of the base.  A variety of acids and bases are available.  The concentrations (Molarity) and amounts (volume) of the acids and bases are variables.

If you are a chemistry instructor (high school, AP Chemistry, or college) using this Flash-based computer simulation in your chemistry classroom, please consider making a voluntary donation to the University of Oregon Foundation "Chemistry Achievement Endowment Fund".  Because Flash will soon no longer be supported by browsers, we need funding to convert this simulation to a HTML5 based computer code.  There is a letter explaining the situation and a "donate" link on the home page of this "chemdemos" web site and on TG's UO web page:

Curriculum Notes 

Learning Objectives

1. Given a beginning question or research question, set-up an acid-base titration experiment so that the experiment provides data to answer the question.

2. Explain the term acid-base titration.

3. Write balanced chemical equations representing acid-base reactions.

4. Solve acid-base titration problems involving molarity, solution volume, and number of moles of solute (acid and base).   

5. Calculate the concentration of a solute (acid or base) given information provided by a titration experiment.
