Citric acid, C6H8O7, is a triprotic acid. It occurs naturally in
citrus fruits like lemons and has applications in food flavouring
and preservatives. A solution containing an unknown
concentration of the acid is titrated with KOH. It requires
23.20 mL of 0.500 M KOH solution to titrate all three acidic
protons in 100.00 mL of the citric acid solution. Write a balanced
net ionic equation for the neutralization reaction.
