Needing help identifying a salt.

  1. Jan 10, 2016 #1
    So I recently did a titration lab with a monoprotic acid and sodium hydroxide. After using stochiometric ratios I found the molar mass to be around 175g/mol. It is possible I have a huge percentage error, but can anyone think of an acid that is monoprotic and is within the range of that molar mass? It's mainly for my curiosity and is not part of my lab.

    Plenty of organic acids that can fit. There is one with molar mass of 176.12 g/mol that is technically diprotic, but it will behave as a monoprotic during titration. You know it pretty well and consume it on a daily basis :wink:
