    You can use Methyl orange as the suitable indicator for this titration. A measured amount of the Nitric acid is taken in a flask with the indicator is titrated with the sodium carbonate from a burette.

    The reaction expected is Na2CO3 + 2HNO3 ---> 2NaNO3 + H2O+ CO2(gas)

    Stop the addition of ...
