On Friday, the 15th June, 19 Year 12 Chemistry students had the opportunity to compete in the RACI titration competition at Sydney University. The competition involves titrating or mixing an acid with a base to determine the concentration of the unknown base, then using that value to titrate against an unknown concentration of acetic acid which is found in vinegar to accurately determine its concentration.

Students work in groups of three and have only one and a half hours to complete the task. This year 108 school and 1341 students competed at different venues around the state.

One team consisting of Rabie Asim, Faraj Suhaib and Vinh Phan state ranked 38 out of 420, equal with Knox Grammar. Two other teams ranked 85 and 86 out of 420.

Congratulations to all the students who participated, remaining behind several afternoons building up their titration skills. We look forward to challenging more schools next year.
