# Question #b33d8

##### 2 Answers

I can't give you a "correct" answer with the information given, but I can show you how to solve it, which I did.

#### Explanation:

This is a really annoying unit conversion problem before we can even solve it, hold on:

You usually need the volume of one or the other solution in order to accurately solve this problem, but I will assume we are trying to neutralize

This appears to be a bit unreasonable, so perhaps in your problem the amount of citric acid needing to be neutralized is larger.

The required volume is

#### Explanation:

**Step 1. Write the balanced equation for the reaction**

or

Citric acid is a tribasic acid. Its titration curve will look something like the one below.

**Step 2. Calculate the moles of #"NaOH"#**

**Step 3. Calculate the volume of #"NaOH"#**

**Note**: The answer can have only one significant figure, because that is all you gave for the concentration of the

However, I calculated the answer to two significant figures.
