Origin of titrationfrom titrate + -ion
Titration is a process of figuring out how much of a substance is in a substance with a known volume.
An example of titration is causing a color change in a substance which has been been disolved in a liquid and then calculating the concentration of the substance based on the color.
the process of finding out how much of a certain substance is contained in a known volume of a solution by measuring volumetrically how much of a standard solution is required to produce a given reaction
The process, operation, or method of determining the concentration of a substance in solution by adding to it a standard reagent of known concentration in carefully measured amounts until a reaction of definite and known proportion is completed, usually as shown by a color change or by electrical measurement, and then calculating the unknown concentration.
The process or operation of determining the concentration of a substance in solution. Titration is performed by adding to a known volume of the solution a standard reagent of known concentration in carefully measured amounts until a reaction of definite and known proportion is completed (as shown by a color change or by electrical measurement) and then calculating the unknown concentration.
- This method is made up of three operations: - (1) preparation of a standard solution.; (2) preparation of a solution of the substance; (3) titration, or the determination of what volume of the standard solution will occasion a known and definite reaction with a known volume of the test solution.
- The solution is then ready for titration with the standard permanganate solution.
- Chlorides can be estimated quantitatively by conversion into silver chloride, or if in the form of alkaline chlorides (in the absence of other metals, and of any free acids) by titration with standard silver nitrate solution, using potassium chromate as an indicator.
- (3) The titration is conducted by running the standard solution from a burette into a known volume of the test solution, which is usually transferred from the stock-bottle to a beaker or basin by means of a pipette.
- Besides the determination of salinity by titration of the chlorides, the method of determination by the specific gravity of the sea-water is still often used.
