Lesson Plan: Volumetric Analysis Chemistry
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to describe volumetric analysis and use results from titration experiments to calculate the concentration of a solution.
Students will be able to
- describe volumetric analysis and its uses,
- recall how to calculate the number of moles from concentration and volume,
- recall how to use balanced equations and ratios to calculate the number of moles of one reactant from the volume of another reactant,
- calculate the concentration of an acid from the volume of base that neutralizes it and vice versa,
- use the results from a titration experiment to calculate the unknown concentration of a solution,
- calculate the percentage of an acid or base in a mixture.
Students should already be familiar with
- molar concentrations,
- balancing equations.
Students will not cover
- performing titration experiments,
- back-titration calculations,
- pH or indicators.
