Titration is a technique used to determine
the concentration of a solute in a solution.
In this procedure, one solution is added to
another solution until the chemical reaction
between the two solutes is complete; the
concentration of one solution is known and that of
the other is unknown. In other words, it is an
analytical process of analyzing the composition of
a solution by adding known amounts of a
standardized solution until a given reaction
(color change, precipitation, or conductivity
change) is produced. From the volume of the sample
and the volume of standard solution used, the
concentration of a specific material may be
calculated. This process is often used for
instance, in the determination of a drug dosage.
