Holt Modern Chemistry: Acid-Base Titration

Published on 06/09/2008

Activity Overview

This activity Acid-Base Titration from the chapter Acid-Base Titration and pH uses the calculator program TITRAFC4 to display titration curves for the titration of a strong or weak acid with a strong base. The titration curve shows the change in pH with the addition of the strong base to the acid solution.

Before the Activity

Read the activity sheet PDF file and plan what steps you will take.
Make copies of the first page in the activity sheet PDF file for your class.
Download the TITRAFC4 program to your student calculators.

During the Activity

Students will:

  • Display titration curves for the titration of a strong or weak acid with a strong base


  • Directions:
  • Distribute the student activity sheets
  • Follow the procedures as outlined
  • After the Activity

    As a class, review student answers, discussing questions that appeared to be more challenging, and re-teaching as needed.
