# How do you solve titration problems?

##### 1 Answer

Try using dimensions when you do the calculations.

#### Explanation:

With a titration a measured quantity of titrant is added to a known mass of known molar quantity.

We use the relationship,

and

Now when we use

When we multiply a concentration by a VOLUME, we get the product,

Now a chemical reaction is VITAL when you do a titration. For acid/base titrations this is typically:

The stoichiometric equivalence must be borne in mind, when you do the calculation. So, as a general rule, you must have the appropriate, stoichiometrically balanced chemical equation. Most of the time, there is 1:1 molar equivalence, and,
