FREE Expert Solution

We’re being asked to calculate the volume (in mL) of 0.132 M HClO4 (strong acid) required to reach the equivalence point in a titration of 50.00 mL of 0.0789 M NaOH (strong base)


Recall that at the equivalence point of a titration:


moles acid=moles base


Also, recall that moles = molarity × volume

This means:


MVacid=MVbase
