1) Using the 1st equivalence point from part a calculate the molarity of the phosphoric acid. Molarity of NaOH = .1523 M
Volume of phosphoric acid used 10.0mL
Volume at equivalence point 7.410 mL and 14.861 mL

2) Using the 2nd equivalence point from part a, calculate the molarity of the phosphoric acid. (remember that 2 H+ ions are being neutralized in this case.) How does this value compare to question one?
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

    NaOH + H3PO4 ==> NaH2PO4 + H2O
    mL x M NaOH = millimols.
    That = mmols H3PO4
    M H3PO4 = mmols H3PO4/mL H3PO4 = ?

    2NaOH + H3PO4 ==>Na2HPO4
    mL x M NaOH = 14.861 x 0.1538 = ?
    mmols H3PO4 = ? x 1/2
    M H3PO4 = mmols H3PO4/10 mL = ?

    Thank you for your response! Having all of these numbers confused me. So for part a I'm multiplying 7.410 mL (first equivalence point) by .1523 M. I got 1.129 mmol H3PO4. Then divided it by 10.0mL to get a concentration of 0.113 M H3PO4.

    I see I made a typo on molarity. The 0.1538 I used should be 0.1523.
    You're right. 7.410 x 0.1523/10.0 = ?
    14.810 x 0.1523 x 1/2 x 1/10.0 = ?

    Thanks so much and the typo was no big deal I knew what you meant. :) you're a life saver!
