Titration is a method of quantitative analysis, by which a student, with standard volumetric equipment, burettes, and pipettes, can achieve very precise, and accurate results. It is also known as #"volumetric analysis"#.

Typically, a solution of known concentration is added to an unknown analyte, with which it reacts according to known stoichiometric proportion. The volumes used are precisely measured. Titrations typically use indicators so as to signal the end of the reaction. Students are commonly introduced to acid/base titrations at A level, and to complexometric and gravimetric titrations as undergraduates.
