What’s wrong with my ketchup?

Our year 10s are in action carrying out a Titration experiment to determine the concentration of an unknown acid.

Titration is frequently used in the food industry to keep the acid, base, and salt content in the food products under supervision. Some of the everyday food products, whose quality is determined by titration are: Acetic Acid in Vinegar, Mayonnaise and Ketchup.

This practical is known as a PAG (Practical Assessment Group). Eastbrook students are required to complete a set of core practical as they will be assessed on this in their final exam.

In Science we ensure that our curriculum covers all aspects of the specification so students are well prepared for any assessments, and most importantly are having fun while doing these practicals.
