To Prepare and standardize 0.5 M Sulphuric acid standard solution


This is direct acid-base titration in which sulphuric acid reacts with sodium carbonate to form carbon dioxide and water. As carbonic acid formed in reaction can change the color of indicator before equivalence point it is advisable to boil solution to perform the errorless titration


Preparation of 0.5M Sulphuric acid standard solution

Add slowly, with stirring,   ml of sulphuric acid  to  about 1000 ml  of    water, allow to cool 25°C

Standardization of 0.5M Sulphuric acid solution Weigh accurately about 1.5 g of anhydrous sodium carbonate, previously heated at about 270ºC 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
