    Hi queenstudy! :smile:

    Can you give us a little more to work with...?
    What did you measure?
    Which formula(s) did you use to calculate the acidic concentration from your measurements?

    thank you serena but fixed my problem , but i just want to know something , why if i have a value different from the professor for every 0.1 ml my report grade decreases more and more its really unfair

    I'm sorry about your grade. :frown:

    But I believe you can do a titration accurately to 1 drop, which is about 0.03 mL.
    Shouldn't an accuracy of 0.1 mL be achievable if you work carefully?
