    A student splashed some sodium hydroxide out of the conical flash just as she was about to start her titration. How will this affect the concentration of the acid she calculates?


    I know the concentration of sodium hydroxide will increase and volume will decrease. Does that mean it will increase the concentration of the acid she calculates or something?

    If some is splashed out then there will be more in the flask. So the point at which the end point is obtained will change which will result in her calculating more acid concentration as it'll take more acid .

    volume will be lower than used in the calculation. Thus less acid will be needed to neutralise, suggesting less moles of alkali and thus a lower concentration.

    Sorry, are you asking for information about what is on a controlled and assessed piece of coursework?
