HC2O4- H+ + C2O4-2
To clearly resolve the separate steps in the titration curve of a polyprotic acid, the successive Ka's ought to change by at least 3 or 4 orders of magnitude.
Here is an introductory discussion of endpoint detection. For a little more about find pKa's from pH measurements, see the next question.
