Investigate the effect of one factor on the experimentally determined pKa of a weak acid.

Recommended Posts

Does temperature change the pKa of acetic acid?

I heard that temperature kind of breaks down the acetic acid or something. Is that true?

Can I use the titration method for this prac?

Yeah, everything is in that link.

But I don't see it efficient to use titration, that's normally used when the only variables involved are the concentration and pH.

Perhaps you could get the weak acid determined experimentally, then divide it into samples and investigate each sample with a different temperature. It's the first thing that popped into my head right now, so not really certain that it works. :P
