-The acid content of many foods and beverages contributes significantly to their taste. Soft drinks often contain varying quantities of several acids, which give sodas their tart flavor. In cola products, these acids are predominantly carbonic acid (from the carbonated water) and phosphoric acid. In sodas such as Sprite and 7-Up, the acids are carbonic acid and citric acid.
-In this experiment you will be performing a titration to determine the concentration of citric acid in a soft drink.
-A buret is used in a titration to dispense measured increments of one solution into a known volume of another solution. Careful technique will allow you to detect the point where the reaction is complete; in this case, when all of the citric acid has been reacted with the base.


  • Determine the concentration of citric acid in soda using a standard solution of sodium hydroxide.


  • Neutralization Titration

Tens of 3D simulations of science with you everywhere and all the time

You can easily access more than 130 of the 3D simulations of Physics, Chemistry and Biology anytime via your PC, laptop, tablet or even your smartphone, without any need to install an additional driver software.

Our virtual lab aims to facilitate the science teaching process for educators and also make it easy for students to absorb the theory and the application of all science experiments.

All of the 3D simulations are baked with a helping multimedia files to ensure that all learners can perform the science experiments without facing any difficulties.

Our virtual labs enable your institution to save most of physical labs budget

Save most of the money you always dedicate to spend on the materials and tools of the physical science labs. PraxiLabs will enable your students to repeat the steps of the experiments for unlimited times without any need to spend more money to get lab supplies.

Praxilabs will reduce the regular costs that allocated for the maintenance of the equipment of your physical labs as well as helps to increase its lifetime due to the lower frequency of usage.

You will also be able to teach your students how to perform the science experiments that requires a very expensive equipment without the need to purchase such equipment.
