If a chemist titrates 125 mL of sodium hydroxide with a 6.2 M solution of hydrochloric acid and the titraiton requires 65.0 mL of the acid to reach the end point. What is the concentration of the sodium hydroxide?

BALANCE equation
NaOH + HCl --> NaCl + H2O

CALCULATE number of moles of HCl present
65.0 mL HCl x 1 L/1000 mL x 6.2 mol HCl/ 1 HCl = .031 mol HCl

USE MOLAR RATIO from equation to convert from moles of HCl to moles of NaOH
.031 mol HCl x 1 mol NaOH/1 mol HCl = .031 mol NaOH

CALCULATE concentration
Concentration = number of moles/volume
Volume of NaOH = 125 mL = .125 L
.031 mol NaOH/.125 L NaOH
Concentration = .248 mol/L = .248 M
