Learn how to prepare and standardize 1 M Hydrochloric Acid using anhydrous Sodium Carbonate and Methyl Red solution as indicator.
Preparation• Dilute 85 ml of hydrochloric acid with water to produce 1000 ml.
• Standardize the solution in the following manner.
• Weigh accurately about 1.5 g of anhydrous sodium carbonate, previously heated at about 270°C for 1 hour.
• Dissolve it in 100 ml of water and add 0.1 ml of methyl red solution.
• Add the acid slowly from a burette, with constant stirring, until the solution becomes faintly pink.
• Heat the solution to boiling, cool and continue the titration.
• Heat again to boiling and titrate further as necessary until the faint pink color is no longer affected by continued boiling.
• 1 ml of 1 M hydrochloric acid is equivalent to 0.05299 g of Na2CO3.
• Calculate molarity of solution by following formula:
M = -----------------------------------
Hydrochloric Acid in ml x 52.99
