Flinn At-Home Lab 6–Titrations (L6)

In this lab students will watch a titration in action and understand how it relates to acid-base chemistry and stoichiometry. Students will learn how titrations can be performed to determine the unknown concentrations of acids and bases, and how this idea is applied in the production of commercial products.
