During a titration, which of the following actions would improve the accuracy of the measurement?

  • ARinsing the inside of the analyte flask with additional solvent before each addition of titrant.
  • BMixing the solution with a glass rod after each addition of titrant.
  • CFilling the buret to the highest graduation mark.
  • DAdding five more drops of indicator to the analyte.
  • ESwirling a basic analyte solution for longer after each addition of acid titrant.

For a titration to be effective, the reaction must be rapid, and the yield of the reaction must essentially be 1 0 0 % . For a good titration reaction, what is the value of 𝐾 c ?

  • A 𝐾 1 c
  • B 𝐾 = 0 c

A student performs a titration, pouring one liquid into the buret from a beaker and pipetting a second liquid into the Erlenmeyer flask, as shown.

What name is given to the liquid poured into the buret?

  • A Titrant
  • BIndicator
  • C Titrand
  • D Filtrate
  • E Titer

What name is given to the liquid pipetted into the Erlenmeyer flask?

  • A Indicator
  • B Titer
  • C Analyte
  • D Filtrate
  • E Titrant

What name is given to the liquid already present in the Erlenmeyer flask?

  • A Titrand
  • BTitrant
  • C Titer
  • DFiltrate
  • E Indicator

In what way has the apparatus been incorrectly assembled?

  • A The buret tap is open.
  • B The funnel in the buret is too long, preventing the buret from being completely filled.
  • C The Erlenmeyer flask has not been clamped.
  • D The liquid in the Erlenmeyer flask should be stirred using a stir bar.
  • E Liquid should be added to the Erlenmeyer flask using a volumetric pipet.
