# How do you solve titration problems for concentration?

Mar 19, 2018

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,

${v}_{1} {c}_{1} = {v}_{2} {c}_{2}$

• ${v}_{1}$ 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 $\left(\text{M}\right)$ to calculate the concentration, while for volume, we can use liters $\left(\text{L}\right)$.
