Homework Help: chemistry

Posted by chemistrybuddy on Monday, June 2, 2008 at 11:31pm.

hi, i am trying to develop a lab where i find the solubility of Sodium acetate. I was wondering in i was in the right path.

We are given these three compounds:
Acetic acid aka vinegar
baking soda (sodium hydrogen carbonate)
0.100mol/l Naoh(aq)
0.100/l HCL(aq)

So we are not given Sodium acetate so we have to first titrate NAOH with Acetic Acid which produces the sodium acetate and water. here is the equation.

Naoh + CH3COOH = CH3COONa + H2O

So i am going titrate acid(CH3COOH) to base (Naoh). How do i measure solubility of Acetic Acid( CH3COONa ) from that? check when it forms a precipitate?
