Posted by Tim's Titration Lab on Friday, April 4, 2008 at 3:39pm.

Purpose: The purpose of this experiment is to determine the Ksp for calcium hydroxide.

Materials are:
*50.0 mL of 0.10 M HCl(aq)
*bromophenol blue indicator
*50.0 mLsaturated calcium hydroxide
*50.0 mL buret
*125 mL Erlynmyer Flask
*50.0 mL of distilled water
*10.0 mL pipet with pump
*waste beaker

The procedure for the lab is:
1.Fill the buret with the acid solution.
2.Pipet 10.0 mL of calcium hydroxide into the flask.
3.Add approximately 10.0 mL of water to the flask.
4.Add 4 drops of bromophenol blue to the flask.
5.Titrate the base to an endpoint and record the volume of acid added.
6.Dispose of the flask contents into a waste beaker.
7.Repeat steps 2-6 four more times.

The following is what I am having trouble with.

Present your data in a table.Use the following table as a guide:
Trial 1 Trial 2 Trial 3
*Initial volume
of HCL(mL)

*Final volume
of HCL (mL)

*Volume of
HCL added (mL)

I am having difficulty regarding the trial 1 column. What is my initial volume of HCL(mL) supposed to be?
