Answer

An acid-base titration is a laboratory procedure in which an acidic or basic solution of unknown concentration is reacted with a basic or acidic of known concentration in order to determine the concentration of the unknown. An indicator is a dye whose color depends on the pH of the solution it is dissolved in and is often used to detect the endpoint of a titration.

Work Step by Step

Solutions can be titrated for numerous purposes where the specific mechanism of the acid-base reaction and/or the overall pH of the solution is important.
