I am trying to find the solubility of Sodium Acetate by using 0.100 mol Hydroxide(base) and 0.837 mol acetic acid( vinegar).
The theoretical solubility of sodium acetate is 82.3g/100ml at 25C. Doing calculations we would want NAOH concentration of 10.47mol/l to react with the vinegar. Since this is not possible we are going heat up the solution mixed up of acetic acid and Hydroxide until a precipitate forms to find its solubility.
I know we need a lot less acetic acid but how we know how much we need of NAOH and Acetic acid?
