Sodium hydroxide is used extensively in acid-base titrations because it is a strong inexpensive base. A sodium hydroxide solution was standardized by titrating 27 mL of 0.1628 M standard hydrochloric acid. The initial buret reading of the sodium hydroxide was 2.44 mL, and the final reading was 39.39 mL. What was the molarity of the base solution?
