Terms in Volumetric Analysis

The terms used in Volumetric analysis or the important terms in volumetric analysis, are as follows. Mainly there are four main terms let us check it out one by one.

  1. Titrate: The substance which is the be determined is called or termed as the titrate.
  2. Titrant: The substance of  the known concentration is termed as titrant.
  3. Titration: The process of determining the volume is called as titiration.
  4. End point: The point at which the reaction is completed is termed as the end point.
Again one must know the definition of volumetric analysis. It is the type of quantitative analysis which is based on the determination of the volume of the solution of the given or known concentration or the standard required to react quantitatively with a solution of the substance which is to be analysed.
