Titration is a quantitative analytical procedure used to determine the unknown concentration of an identified pure chemical substance. Such an experiment can also be considered volumetric analysis, as the volume of the identified substance, the analyte, is measured to determine its concentration. The actual process involves an analyte being slowly introduced into the titrant, which is a prepared solution with a fixed volume and concentration. By measuring the volume of analyte required to neutralize the titrant, if it is an acid-base titration, the analyte concentration can be calculated. For example, if a titration experiment had a titrant of 25 ml of 0.5 NaOH, and an analyte of 50 ml of HCL, then the concentration of HCl can be calculated as follows: Moles of base = moles of OH- = 0.025L * 0.5 M = 0.0125 moles Since moles of base has to equal moles of acid (H+), then: 0.0125 moles = 0.05 L * x Where, x is the unknown concentration of HCL Solving for x: X = 0.0125/0.05 = 0.25 M of HCl Therefore, understanding titrations are crucial in the laboratory, as it is a fundamental component of stoichiometric analysis.
