Description and uses:

To prepare Primary Standard solutions for standardising acid titrant solutions.

250.0 ml of a 0.1 N (equivalent/L) sodium carbonate Standard Solution requires approximately 1.3248 g to weighed accurately to 0.1 mg (best) or 1 mg (acceptable) and transferred into a 250.0 ml calibrated volumetric flask. Adding water to completely dissolve the primary standard, then filling the flask to the 250 ml mark yields a solution of exactly known Normality.

If the precisely weighed amount was m then the titer t of the solution is t = m / 1.3248.

A 10.0, 20.0 or 25.0 ml sample of this solution is then titrated (repeatedly) against the acid solution to be standardised, using an appropriate end-point indicator or potentiometric determination of end-point. For strong acids Methyl Orange solution is the recommended indicator, changing from yellow to orange at end point.
