Acid Base Titrations


A titration is a method for determining an unknown concentration of a substance, by using a substance with a known concentration (standard solution).

How to perform a titration video

By using the volumes of each (both the known and unknown), a chemist can determine the concentration of the unknown.


 V=volumes (must be in the same units)

Ma= concentration of the H+  (**note 2M H2SO4 is really 4M H+)

Mb= concentration of OH- (2M Ca(OH)2 is really 4M OH-)

Past regents questions

June 2010-28 During which process can 10.0 milliliters of a 0.05 M HCl(aq) solution be used to determine the unknown concentration of a given volume of NaOH(aq)solution?
(1) evaporation    (3) filtration
(2) distillation       (4) titration

Jan 2010-24 The data collected from a laboratory titration are used to calculate the
(1) rate of a chemical reaction
(2) heat of a chemical reaction
(3) concentration of a solution
(4) boiling point of a solution
