Chemistry 12

Hey yall!

i am working on a lab where we used
NaOH solid (pellets) and 1.0M of NaOH solution.

i was wondering is Sodium Hydroxide a substance that reacts with the enviroment?

because maybe that could be like a source of error right?

so basically i am wondering if both or one of these types of NaOH are extremely reactive


Ps. we dissolved NaOH (s) in water and HCL and NaOH (aq) in HCL

kk thankz in advance =)

Yes, NaOH is very reactive, but your source of error could be from many things. Were you doing a titration lab? If so, were the instrument clean, did you use deionized water, was the scale calibrated?
