|Solving an acid base problem - S. E. VanBramer, Widener University, USA.|
|This tutorial focusses on identifying all the species in an aqueous solution and determining whether these species
react as a prerequisite to calculations. In other words, you need to know what you have in solution in order to
solve the problem. This is an excellent tutorial.|
|pH Titration Curves Download (This is a self-extracting archive)|
|Download a program which allows you to generate and explore pH titration curves exactly as you would in the
laboratory. Unknowns with answers are provided.|
Download the file to a temporary directory, c:\temp for example (NOT THE ROOT), and run the curv_arc.exe file. It will unfold into several files in the current directory. Run CURV.EXE to start the program.
|pH Titration Curves Download (Spreadsheet)|
|To download a worksheet, hold down the shift key and click on pH Titration Curves Download. The
worksheet allows you to generate titration curves for the strong acid/strong base case and any number of weak
acid/strong base curves as a function of Ka as illustrated below. Instructions are provided. Worksheets are
provided for Quattro Pro(".wb#"), Excel(".xls"), and Lotus(".wk#").|
Download the file to a temporary directory, c:\temp for example (NOT THE ROOT), and run the ph_curve.exe file. It will provide the worksheet files which can be used with your spreadsheet program.
