Titration half range
« on: July 29, 2021, 01:22:59 AM »
Hi, I am writing a lab report for an equilibrium experiment involving titration of KHP, KHT with NaOH. I have my 3 concordant titres and have worked out the average. the next part of the question asks for "half range titre". I nhave been through all my course materials and cannot find any mention of this. I am assuming this is in relation to the uncertainty and not half of the titre value as the next part of the question asks for the titre volume and uncertainty value. I keep looking at it and it feels wrong but I cant find anything to explain it. Also for the propagation of errors I have been adding the uncertainty values but cant find information on what to do for an average i.e if I have uncertainty of 0.04 in 3 readings propagating to 0.12 but I'm pretty sure when the reading are divided by 3 to get the average the uncertainty does not divide by 3. I could add the percentages but shouldn't the uncertainty value decrease in an average?

My gut feeling is it is about just half the titre, as used for pKa determination.

ok that would make sense, I was not aware half range of the titre was needed to find the equilibrium constant. I cant see it used anywhere on the lab proforma, although I haven't finished filling it out yet but it must be what it is asking for then. Thankyou for replying I am finding it hard having to learn all this online.
