Learn the basics of titration, while exploring vitamin C levels in fruits and vegetables.
Titration is a common lab technique used by chemists to measure the unknown amount of a chemical in a solution. With this kit, you will learn to do a titration while exploring the different vitamin C levels in fruits and vegetables. The kit contains the specialty laboratory equipment (e.g., burette, graduated cylinders, flasks, etc…) needed for titration, as well as the chemicals needed to do one of several Vitamin C-related science projects at Science Buddies.
Freshly squeeze or frozen? Do all orange juices have the same amount of Vitamin C? Does the Vitamin C in a fruit or vegetable change over time? How do different fruits and vegetables (like orange, potatoes, and bell peppers) compare in terms of Vitamin C? Our scientists created this kit with just the right components so you can focus your time on answering these questions and perfecting your chemistry skills!
Each kit contains:
1 Cheesecloth, 18" x 18" 1 Vitamin C tablets (250 mg), pack/5 1 Goggles, Chemical Splash, ANSI Certified 1 Lab apron, rubberized 1 Lugol's iodine solution, 30 mL 1 Soluble starch, 30 g 1 Funnel, small, plastic 1 50 mL graduated cylinder, poly 1 500 mL graduated cylinder, poly 1 50 mL Ehrlenmeyer flask, glass 1 50 mL burette, acrylic 1 Ring stand, 4x6 base, 18 inch rod 1 Buret clamp, Lincoln style 2 Plastic eyedropper 1 Measuring scoop 2 Glass bottle, 8 oz, amber 1 Beaker, glass, 100 mL 2 Nitrile gloves, standard, pair 1 MSDS Sheets
You will also need from home:
Depending on the titration being done, masking tape, a permanent marker, orange juice, oranges and/or other produce are needed.
Please consult the instructions for each project for a complete list of additional materials.
