distinguishing with working on different titrations

Postby CenCen » Sat Dec 05, 2015 10:46 pm

How can you tell whether you're working on a titration problem with both strong acid and base or a strong acid weak base or strong base weak acid?
For the strong acid strong base, how do you know which one is your titrant. does anyone have any helpful videos?

You will need to be able to identify strong acids and strong bases. The titrant will often be defined in this case, but it's not necessary because neutralization is simply 1:1 in H3O+:OH-. Otherwise, titrations will be either weak acid/strong base or weak base/strong acid. The strong acid or base is the titrant.
