Three students represented the College in the National Chemistry Titration Competition at the University of NSW.

Our team of three, Amanda, Alicia and Taylor undertook a gruelling three hours of practical analysis to determine the concentration of an unknown acid solution to four significant figures.

It involved dissolving of a solid, accurately making up a standard solution, then titrating this solution to find the concentration of a base and finally titrating this base against a unknown concentration of an acid. The three students worked separately and their scores were added together to calculate the team score. The lower the score the greater the accuracy of their analysis.

Our team placed 5th with Amanda receiving a gold medal for her accurate analysis with less than 1% error.
