Why do you standardize a titrant?

A titrant must be standardized to analyze unknown acids. This must be performed to determine the amount of mol of that acid that will react to the titrant.

Why there is a need to standardize sodium hydroxide solution prior to its use as titrant?

For calculation (determination of a an analyte concentration) in volumetry we need to know exactly the the concentration of any titrant.

What is double titration?

Double titration is a process were the first titration is used to standardize a titrant and the second titration is used to find the molarity of the unknow solution.

Do you use titrant in conical flask?

yes we use titrant in the conical flask ,this is because titrant is a solution we use in burrete for titration in this process we titrant the solution in the conical flask along with an indicator

What is meant by titrant in titration?

The titrant is the solution involved or used in a titration to determine the concentration of an unknown solution.

What is a titrant?

A titrant is a solution that is taken inside a burette during titration. For e.g., in the acid-base titration of NaOH with HCl, if NaOH is taken in the burette and HCl along with the indicator is taken in the conical flask, NaOH is the titrant.

What is titrant and analyte?

Analyte: the substance to be analyzed by titration. Titrant: the substance (with a known concentration) added to the analyte solution to perform a titration.

What is noun of standardize?

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.

What part of speech is the word standardize?

The word standardize is a verb. It means to establish a standard.

How do you standardize the solution of 1M conc H2SO4?

Why do you do standardisation of titrants in titration methods?

To realize a correct titration and calculus we need to know the concentration of the titrant. Titration of a unknown solution with an unknown titrant has no sense.
