# What volume of sodium hydroxide is required to titrate a 0.1*mol*L^-1 solution of acetic acid?

$\text{Unknown..................}$

#### Explanation:

$\text{Concentration" = "Moles of solute"/"Volume of solution}$

And thus $\text{moles of solute"="concentration"xx"volume}$

Now we know the volume, and the concentration of the weak acid, and thus (assuming a monoprotic acid) we can predict the stoichiometric quantity of sodium hydroxide with which it will react.

But we have no idea of the concentration of the sodium hydroxide solution........
