Homework Help: Titration from basic end point to acid endpoint

  1. Jan 19, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If you started at the basic end-point and titrated acetate solution to the acid end point, how much acid would be required?

    Our acetate solution was:
    1 mL of 0.1 M acetic acid
    1 mL of 0.1 M acetate
    8 mL of water
    total volume: 10 mL

    Titration with 0.1 M HCl
    0.90 mL added at color change

    Titration with 0.1 M NaOH
    1.1 mL added at color change

    I have no idea even where to start.. ?

    You can't start titration at the end point. End point is where you END titration.

    What reaction takes place during titration? Can you write balanced reaction equation?
