(or Titrimetry or Volumetric Analysis) is
the process of adding one solution to another until
it changes color, to analyze the contents of the
One takes a given volume of some solution that has an
unknown amount of some compound (termed the Analyte),
and adds small, known amounts of a compound (a Titrant)
that causes a color-change when in the presence of the
analyte at or above a known specific volume ratio.
When the color of the sample changes, and the amount
of the titrant that brought on this change is noted, the
analyte's percent of the original solution can be calculated.
