Is the calibration of the burette important for a successful experiment?
The calibration of the burette is very important for the experiment. As burette is an along equipment which contains the solution. The solution must be added a drop at a time, so for having the accurate measurement, the burette must be marked in millimetres.
Choosing appropriate equipment: using the right equipment is another skill need for each experiment. In this experiment, I chose conical flask for measuring solution because it is more accurate than using a beaker.
Risk assessment and safety is important to be followed as the instruction in order to have a safe workplace.
Keeping accurate records is another skill which I can apply for any experiment which I suppose to do in the future. The record must be clear to read as someone else can use it. It is also good to have your records in order to compare your results with your classmates. Make sure that all the results are written in a table and with the units.
Washing technique is another skill I used in a titration experiment. The burette and pipette are designed to store some amount of solution. So it is very important to wash them before using I done the washing process by washing each of them three times with distilled water than with the solution they suppose to contain.
