10.5 - Calculations Involving Neutralization Reactions
Calculations involving neutralization reactions are usually carried
out after performing the titrations.
Follow the steps outlined below to solve this type of problems.
Let's look at this example:
Calculate the volume of a 0.200 M KOH solution that is needed
to neutralize 25.00 mL of a 0.115 M HCl solution.
Step 1: Write a balanced equation
for the neutralization reaction and determine the mole ratio of the acid to
Step 2: List the volume and molarity
for the HCl and the KOH solutions. (view
Step 3: Determine
the availability of the number of moles of HCl that is available in the titration.(view
Step 4: Apply the mole ratio determined
in step 1 to determine the moles of base that is needed to neutralize the available
Step 5: Divide the moles of base
by the given concentration of KOH. (view
