    1. Starting with 30 mL of a solution that is 0.1 M in butylamine, calculate the original pH, and then the pH as 5 mL increments of 0.1 M hydrochloric acid are added.  Continue the series of calculations until 40 mL of acid have been added.  Plot the data (pH on the y axis, volume of added acid on the x). 

      Has 99.9% of the butylamine been titrated at the equivalence point?
