Chemistry in Water
Titrations: What Can They Tell You?
- Always, always wear safety glasses in the
laboratory. Your GTA can eject you from the lab if you fail to wear safety glasses.
- Caution! Acids and bases are hazardous if splashed on clothing, exposed skin
or in the eyes. Prolonged exposure of the skin to even fairly dilute solutions of acid and
base can cause serious burns. If acids and bases splash on skin or clothes, remove the
affected clothing and flush the affected areas thoroughly with cold water.
- Notice on disposal of chemical wastes: All of the
solutions used in this laboratory are dilute and can be discarded down the drain after
being neutralized. Consult your GTA on the proper method of disposal.
