If a solution of sodium silicate is titrated with a strong acid, using methyl orange as an indicator, a very different end point is obtained from that obtained using phenolphthalein as an indicator. This difference is well established as being due to the ionization of silicic acid, either acidically or basically after the soda in the silicate has been neutralized by the strong acid. It was the intention of the experimenter to study this acid from the standpoint of the effect of certain variables, in the titration of sodium silicate with a strong acid, on the end points obtained.
