what are the possible sources of error that might lead to an erroneous determination of the concentration of the acetic acid in the titration lab?
1. Errors related to the measurement of volume of acetic acid (what volumetric glassware was used and how it was used).
2. Errors related to using and reading the buret with the NaOH solution.
3. Errors related to reaching the endpoint. Color, etc.
4. Possible error in the value given or determined for the concentration of NaOH.
To be more specific, we would have to know more about the details of the procedure followed.
