# When we use a burette in an acid base titration, how many drops are equivalent to a #13.0*mL# volume?

##### 2 Answers

20.4 drops per 1 mL

#### Explanation:

First we need to calculate how much the volume of the solution has increased. We do this by finding the difference between the end volume and the start volume:

36.0 mL - 23.0 mL = 13.0 mL

265 drops increases the volume of water by 13.0 mL, so to calculate the number of drops per mL we just divide the number of drops by 13.0 mL.

265 drops / 13.0 mL = 20.4 drops per mL

About 20 drops....

We use

And thus we take the quotient.....
