How do you find volume in a titration question?
There are different types of titration, but in here I will assume that the question is about the titration is an acid-base titration.
Assuming we want to find how much base should be added to an acid with a known concentration.
In the question, it should be provided the following data:
Concentration of the acid:
Volume of the acid:
Concentration of the base:
and we will need to determine the volume of the base (
Assuming that the acid and the base are both monoprotic, such as:
In here we can say:
Since the relationship between the number of mole and molarity is:
Thus, the volume of the base needed to titrate the acid is:
Here is a complete lab demonstration on how to carry an acid-base titration in the lab along with the calculations thereafter:
