Problem Details

A line graph shows two lines that go from no color to highly colored as more standard solution is added.  One line increases linearly while one changes suddenly.

Which data set, of the two graphed in the figure, would you expect to observe from a titration like that shown in the figure?

A series of photographs show how to titrate an acid using a phenolphthalein indicator. 1) 20.0 milliliters of acid solution added to flask. 2) A few drops of acid-base indicator added to flask. 3) Standard NaOH solution added to flask from burette, on which the initial volume reading of the base can be taken. 4) Solution becomes basic on passing equivalence point, triggering indicator color change. The solution in the flask has turned a bright pink color, and the final volume reading is taken from the burette.
