Q7-10.
A chemist carries out a titration to find the concentration of a solution of sodium hydroxide.


She titrates 25.0cm3 of sodium hydroxide solution with a solution of sulfuric acid using phenolphthalein as an indicator.  

14.6cm3 of 0.200mol/dm3 sulfuric acid was required.


The equation for the reaction is:

2NaOH(aq) + H2SO4(aq)    Na2SO4(aq) + 2H2O(l)
