I am doing an experiment on the effect of time on the pH of Lime juice. I was wondering how you would calculate the pH through titrations using 1 Molar NaOH. I have been racking my brain on this for a few hours and searching online.

Sorry if this has already been answered. Thank you for your time.

    $\begingroup$ There is no direct relation between pH and titration result, unless there is known there is negligible amount of citric acid salts, of other acids and other pH buffering systems. $\endgroup$ – Poutnik Feb 10 at 7:07

    $\begingroup$ To expand on @Poutnik comment, pH and titration (measuring number of moles) are two different concepts, measuring two different chemical properties. For example, 1 molar HCl is far more acid (lower pH) than 5 molar citric acid, but it would take more NaOH to titrate the citric acid. $\endgroup$ – DrMoishe Pippik Feb 10 at 22:39
  • $\begingroup$ Similarly, a citric acid solution with lower pH can lead to both higher or lower titration volume, depending on the overall solution composition. $\endgroup$ – Poutnik Feb 11 at 6:37
