Hi!

I have an exercise that asks me to determine the mass of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) in a basic solution by titrating it with a 1.8 mol / L acidic solution. The titration shows a neutralization volume of 30 mL for the acid and an initial volume of 20 mL for the base. I am not sure how to find the mass.

Hi!

I'm not sure if I understand how a titration can help us to know the concentration of a solution ... Can someone explain it to me please?

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi! I'm not sure I understand how pH works.

Is the higher, the more acidic?

And if for example I have a solution with a pH of 4 and another with a pH of 8, is the second solution twice as acidic as the first?
