There are three major differences between strong acid/strong base and weak acid/strong base titrations.

For weak acid/strong base titrations:

1. The weak-acid solution has a higher initial pH. 2. The pH rises more rapidly at the start, but less rapidly near the equivalence point. 3. The pH at the equivalence point does not equal 7.00. (should be >7)

In an acid-base titration, there is a 1:1 acid:base stoichiometry, so the equivalence point is the point where the moles of titrant added equals the moles of substance initially in the solution being titrated. Therefor the strength of the acid or base should not have an affect on the quantity of base required, only on the pH of the equivalence point. The number of moles of titrant and solution will have an effect on the quantity of base required.

current is relative because it is measured with respect to time. actually it is the rate of flow of charges with respect to time.when we measured current we measured charges with respect to time. that why it is relative quantity john ahem senior professor at Cambridge university

What is titration solution?

Titration is a common laboratory method of quantitative chemical analysis that is used to determine the unknown cocncentration of a known reactant. The word "titration" comes from the Latin word titulus, meaning inscription or title. The French word titre, also from this origin, means rank. Titration, by definition, is the determination of rank or concentration of a solution with respect to water with a pH of 7 (which is the pH of pure H2O under standard conditions).

Marginal cost can be defined as the?

The cost of increasing the production by one unit. Mathematically, this can be derived as the derivative of the total costs with respect to quantity i.e. dc(q)/dq, where c(q) is the cost function and q is quantity.
