Potassium hydrogen pathalate (KHP ) can provide 1 mol of H+ ion , and NaOH (sodium hydroxide) can provide 1 mol of OH- ion per mol. They react 1 mol to 1 mol.


so moles of Potassium hydrogen pathalate required =moles of NaOH


so we calculate moles of KHP first,



no equating these moles for NaOH.

we find concentration of NaOH(38.14 mL)
