Virtual Lab: Standardization of NaOH with a KHP solution: Acid Base Titration

This is not your standard standardization lab! Take titration into the high-tech age with a simulated workbench. Learners perform titrations to standardize a sodium hydroxide solution using a KHP solution of unknown concentration. Easy-to-use controls make keeping track of significant figures and volumes a snap.

Instructional Ideas

  • Grade the student-designed experiment separately from the assigned problems
  • First time standardizing solutions? Show a video beforehand that illustrates the standardization of a sodium hydroxide solution
Classroom Considerations

  • The resource requires some experience with acids and bases, so it's best to use it halfway through the unit
Pros

  • The lab is a creative way to introduce titrating with standardized solutions
  • Teacher resources include a how-to video that explains how to operate the virtual lab
Cons

  • None
