Acid/base reactions to find the molarity of an unknown solution.


The method of titration is to find the molar concentration of an unknown solution by reacting it with a known molar solution.

By adding the known solution into the unknown you can keep track of the volume added. then by using an indicator or a pH probe you can define the equivalence point, which is the point at where the concentrations of both solutions are equal.

Then, using #M=(mol)/(L)# you can solve for the #M# because you know the volume you added, and you know the concentration of the solution.
