Yes I must admit, I also do not know how the Dr arrived at some of the calculations.

But I needed to watch a pile of other sites videos to understand these calculations.

Thus the benefit of this lecture was somewhat diluted.

I shall give this one more shot to see if indeed it was worth the investment.

His presentation was some what confusing. I did not understand haw he arrived at some of his numbers.

Titrations, Indicators, Buffers

  • Equipment for titration: pipet, buret, volumetric flask

  • n = MV applies both to mol./L and to mmol/mL

  • Do calculations at several points in strong acid/strong base titration

  • Do calculations at several points in weak acid/ strong base titration; and stong acid/weak base titration

  • pH at equivalence point in weak acid/strong base titration is basic; in strong acid /weak base titration is acidic

  • Indicators are weak acids or bases with different colors in neutral and ionic forms

  • Indicators are most useful at pH close to their pK

  • Buffer solutions resist pH change if diluted, or if small amounts of strong acids or bases are added; useful in chemical and biochemical work

  • Buffer solutions are made from weak acids and their salts; or weak bases and their salts
