The quantity 432mg of a monoamino monocarboxylic amino acid is observed to consume 7.39 mEq of acid and base in the titration range pH 0.8 to 12.0. What is the name of the amino acid?
I just did the titration experiment and my brain is fried. I can't begin to start this problem. Can someone help please?

    #milliequivalents x milliequivalent weight = grams
    7.39 x mew = 0.432
    mew = ?? for which I found 0.0585 or 58.5 for the equivalent.
