Titration is a method for determining the concentration of a substance in solution.

It is performed by by adding to the solution a reagent of known concentration in carefully measured amounts until a visible (eg colour change) reaction happens.

Then as the concentration of the reagent is know and the volume of the reactant is known, one can calculate the concentration of the reactant present in the solution.
