Determination of hardness • the hardness of water can be estimated by methods such as gravimetric analysis, edta titration, atomic absorption, etc, • in the above methods, edta titration is the most inexpensive and simple way of determining the hardness. It is also known as non carbonate hardness and it is caused by cacl2mgcl2, caso4 and mgso4, the ion exchange method is used for the removal of the permanent hardness sodium zeolite is added to hard water due to which calcium or magnesium zeolite is formed which is insoluble in water.
11 this test method covers the determination of hardness in water by titration this test method is applicable to waters that are clear in appearance and free of chemicals that will complex calcium or magnesium the lower detection limit of this test method is approximately 2 to 5 mg/l as caco 3 the upper limit can be extended to all concentrations by sample dilution. Determination of the hardness of water one of the factors that establishes the quality of a water supply is its degree of hardness hardness is defined as calcium and magnesium ion content.

Titrimetric water hardness determination background the total hardness of water (ie the concentration of dissolved cations such as ca 2+, mg 2+, fe 3+, etc) is commonly determined by the titration of a water sample with a standardized solution of the disodium salt of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (edta) using eriochrome black t or calmagite as an indicator. General remarks water hardness is a measure of the amount of calcium and magnesium salts dissolved in water there are no health hazards associated with water hardness, however, hard water causes scale, as well as the reduced lathering of soaps. Determining total hardness in water by complexometric titration key concepts experimental determination of ca 2+ and mg 2+ in hard water there are 3 steps to determining the concentration of calcium and magnesium ions in hard water using the complexometric titration method with edta. Each determination requires only 3 min and gives quantitative data for both magnesium and calcium hardness no dilution or pre-treatment is needed for most water samples.
For magnesium but not advisable for calcium due to the small formation constant of ca-ebt complex causing the formed ca-edta to dissociate even before reaching the equivalence point application of statistical concepts in the determination of weight variation in coin samples university of the.
