  1. You must recognize what you have at the equivalence point.
    CH3COOH + NaOH ==> CH3COONa + H2O.
    At the equivalence point, we have converted all of the CH3COOH to CH3COONa (sodium acetate) so we have M x L = 0.1 x 0.025 = 0.0025 moles sodium acetate. That is in a volume of 50 mL (the other 25 came from 25 mL of 0.1 M NaOH). The pH will be determined by the hydrolysis of water. If we call acetate, Ac^-, and acetic acid HAc, then
    Ac^- + HOH ==> HAc + OH^-

    Kb for acetate = (Kw/Ka) = (HAc)(OH^-)/(Ac^-).
    Set up an ICE chart and solve.
    Post your work if you get stuck.

  2. help me solve "use the results of your experiment to determine the various endpoints and then plot a titration curves expected of the two indicators, volume of NaOH (x-axis) pH range of indicators (y-axis)
    results are :for bromothymol blue indicator average title volume is27.3 and for phenolphthalein indicator average average titre volume is 27.77
