How do you standardize a titrant?
Use a well-known and well-characterized compound with a
carefully measured concentration. If doing an acid-base titration
always use a strong base or a strong acid, and not a weak one.

Asked in Titrations
How does back titration differ from a direct titration?
direct titration involves the direct and stepwise addition of a standard titrant to the analyte whilst the back titration involves reacting a standard excess titrant wth an analyte solution of an unknown concentration, then reacting the excess (left over) titrant with an analyte of known concentration to determine the concentration of excess titrant.
