How Much Calcium Carbonate Is in an Eggshell?

Students will conduct a virtual acid-base titration lab and perform the appropriate calculations to determine the amount of calcium carbonate in an eggshell.  At the end of the lab the student should be able to:

  • Determine the amount of calcium carbonate present in an eggshell
  • Relate experimental titration measurements to a balanced chemical equation
  • Infer a conclusion from experimental data
  • Apply reaction stoichiometry concepts.
