Practicals form an integral part of any course in Chemistry. In Year 12, students start the year by experimenting with titrations. They learn how to make up a standard solution, often making the mistake of overshooting the mark and having to start all over again.
Titrations are very important, especially in the pharmaceutical industry, where they are employed to meticulously verify the composition of each product batch. Following that, Year 12 students will conduct a titration on aspirin to determine if its composition matches the information provided on the packaging.
