    Solution Preview

    In order to titrate the acid to neutral endpoint, you must add equal moles of base to neutralize the acid. Since NaOH gives off one OH- group and HNO3 gives off one H+, the stoichiometry between base and acid is 1:1. Therefore, at neutral endpoint, moles of acid is equal to the moles ...

    Solution Summary

    The general formula for this type of question is M(base)V(base)=M(acid)V(acid).
