Titration and how it works

Postby 704578485 » Tue Dec 01, 2015 11:01 am

Hi! I just want to make sure I am getting the fundamentals of the titration process. The goal is to find the concentration of a solution so you add either a strong acid or base depending on whether the solution is acidic or basic. You continue to add your strong base or acid until you reach the stochiometric point. Since you know the molarity of the solution you added, you can calculate how many moles of the strong acid or base you used. Since at the stochiometric point # of moles known solution=# of moles unknown, you have the # of moles of whatever is in the unknown concentration solution. You now just divide moles by the original volume of solution before titration and you have the concentration. Is this correct?

Yup, that's a great explanation of how titrations are used experimentally.
