Titration Calculations

Note: You may assume that the densities of all solutions are 1.00 g/mL unless stated otherwise

1. A 10.00-mL sample of a solution containing the weak acid, formic acid, was placed in a 25-mL volumetric flask and diluted to the mark with water. A 10.00-mL sample of the diluted formic acid solution was then titrated with 0.1322 M sodium hydroxide. If the titration required 15.80 mL of sodium hydroxide to reach the equivalence point, calculate the molarity and percentage by mass of formic acid in the original solution before dilution.

2. A student titrated a solution of formic acid with sodium hydroxide. The student plotted pH versus volume (mL) of NaOH added and found that the titration required 26.66 mL of NaOH to reach the equivalence point. Describe how you would use the student's titration curve to determine the Ka for formic acid.
