Titrations of Diprotic and Polyprotic Acids

Q. You are given a 1.00 g sample of an unknown tri-protic acid, which you dissolved in 50.0 mL of water containing phenolphthalein indicator. You titrate the acid solution with standardized 0.400 M KOH(aq). It requires 39.06 mL of the KOH solution to produce a light pink indicator color. What is the molecular weight of the unknown acid?

Titrations of Diprotic and Polyprotic Acids

Q. A student was given a 0.15 M solution of an unknown diprotic acid H2A and asked to determine the Ka1 and Ka2 values for the diprotic acid. The student titrated 44.4 mL of the 0.15 M H2A with 0.15 M KOH. After 22.2 mL of KOH was added, the pH of the resulting solution was 6.37. After 44.4 mL of KOH was added, the pH of the resulting solution was 8.34. What is the value of ka2 for the diprotic acid when ka1 is 4.2e-7?
