Hello! :)


To answer this problem, we need to write a chemical equation for the titration of the triprotic acid.

we let the triprotic acid be H3A  

H3A + NaOH    --->  H2A- +  Na+  + H2O

H2A- + NaOH   ---> HA2- + Na+ + H2O

HA2- + NaOH  ---> XA- +  Na+  + H2O


H3A  + 3NaOH  ----> Na3A + 3H2O     this will be our working
