Because of the inaccuracies of the Scaife method for the determination of lime, the hydrogen electrode has been tried as an instrument for analyzing lime. It is found that a characteristic curve may be obtained which will enable the analyst to distinguish between the Ca O, Ca Co3 and the Mg O present in a sample of lime. Hydrochloric or oxalic acid may be used for titration, but the hydrochloric seems to give best results.
