Calculation of titration curves

Based on the particle and charge balance, students can simulate the curve for the titration of a strong acid with a strong base. Approximations for the acidic and basic sides provide two simple equations for this purpose.

Put together in a diagram, the two graphs give the titration curve. The figure shows the comparison of a titration curve calculated in this way with experimental data from a titration of hydrochloric acid with sodium hydroxide solution (0.1 M each) using school resources.
