Answer:

I think a good way would be to use dilution equation.

Explanation:

In titration, we mix an acid with an alkali with different volumes and concentrations, so a useful formula would be one that links the two quantities.

I can think of one simple equation, which states that,

#v_1c_1=v_2c_2#

  • #v_1# is the volume of the first solution, let's say an acid.

  • #v_2# is the volume of the second solution, let's say an alkali.

  • #c_1# is the concentration of the first solution.

  • #c_2# is the concentration of the second solution.

Commonly, we would use molarity #("M")# to calculate the concentration, while for volume, we can use liters #("L")#.
