What is the theoretical point when the number of moles of added is equal to the number of moles of titrated in an initial solution?

This is called the #"stoichiometric end point."#


And of course, the end point may NOT represent a 1:1 equivalence of moles of reactant, and moles of product.

Titration of diacids represent a different stoichiometry, as shown below. As with all these types of reactions, a balanced chemical equation is necessary to represent the equivalence, the stoichiometry:

#H_2SO_4(aq) + 2NaOH(aq) rarr Na_2SO_4(aq) + 2H_2O(l)#

Most of the time, we rely on suitable #"indicators"# to indicate the end point.
