Problem: What is the molarity of a NaOH solution if 39.1 mL of a 0.112 M H2SO4 solution is required to neutralize a 25.0-mL sample of the NaOH solution (as in a titration)? A) 54.7 M B) 0.224 M C) 0.350 M D) 0.143 M E) 0.0716 M

FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the molarity of NaOH (strong base) from the given the molarity and volume of H2SO4


This means that 25.00 mL of NaOH required 39.1 mL of 0.112 M H2SO4 to reach the equivalence point.
