Titration: Page 1

Titration is used for determining how much of an analyte in moles (or millilmoles) is in a solution. Analyte is the term for the dissolved unknown in the titration experiment. This is done by slowly adding a standard solution, or a reagent of known concentration, until the titration is determine to be complete. This typically occours after the titration has passed an equivalence point, or when the amount of reagent equals, chemically, the amount of analyte. The equilvalence point is not something that is typically observed however because around the equlvalence point, one drop before and there is no change in pH and the next drop changes the pH sometimes by 3-4 units. The equilvalence point is between these two drops and the closer these two drop are to each other the better the quantification of the analyte.
