Problem 1-36

Explain the following statement: The validity of an analytical result ultimately depends on knowing the composition of some primary standard.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step 1 of 3

The validity of an analytical result ultimately depends on knowing the composition of some primary standard solution. This means that the result obtained from analytical analysis depends on knowing the amounts of at-least one of the reactants used, during the analysis.

If the preparation of such a titrant (reactant) is done by dissolving a specified weighed amount of a reagent (which is pure) in a known volume of solution, the concentration of that titrant can be calculated using this known mass and volume. Such a reagent is called ‘primary standard’.
