Worksheet: Titrations

In this worksheet, we will practice describing the correct method for volumetric titrations, calculating concentrations and troubleshooting errors.


During a titration, which of the following actions would improve the accuracy of the measurement?

  • ASwirling a basic analyte solution for longer after each addition of acid titrant.
  • BFilling the buret to the highest graduation mark.
  • CAdding five more drops of indicator to the analyte.
  • DRinsing the inside of the analyte flask with additional solvent before each addition of titrant.
  • EMixing the solution with a glass rod after each addition of titrant.


During a titration, it is not necessary to accurately measure which of the following quantities?

  • AInitial buret reading
  • BTitrant concentration
  • CFinal buret reading
  • DDensity of the titrant


When performing a titration, in which item of glassware is the analyte usually placed?

  • AVolumetric flask
  • BVolumetric pipet
  • CBuret
  • DErlenmeyer flask
  • ERound-bottom flask


When performing a titration, in which item of glassware are stock solutions prepared?

  • ABurette
  • BErlenmeyer flask
  • CRound-bottom flask
  • DVolumetric flask
  • EVolumetric pipette


When performing a titration, in which item of glassware is the titrant placed?

  • AVolumetric flask
  • BVolumetric pipette
  • CErlenmeyer flask
  • DBuret
  • ERound-bottom flask


For a titration to be effective, the reaction must be rapid, and the yield of the reaction must essentially be 1 0 0 % . For a good titration reaction, what is the value of 𝐾 c ?

  • A 0 < 𝐾 1 c
  • B 𝐾 1 c
  • C 𝐾 0 c
  • D 𝐾 1 c
  • E 𝐾 = 0 c


A student performs a titration, pouring one liquid into the buret from a beaker and pipetting a second liquid into the Erlenmeyer flask, as shown.

What name is given to the liquid poured into the buret?

  • A Titer
  • B Titrand
  • C Filtrate
  • D Titrant
  • EIndicator

What name is given to the liquid pipetted into the Erlenmeyer flask?

  • A Indicator
  • B Filtrate
  • C Titrant
  • D Analyte
  • E Titer

What name is given to the liquid already present in the Erlenmeyer flask?

  • ATitrant
  • B Titer
  • C Titrand
  • D Indicator
  • EFiltrate

In what way has the apparatus been incorrectly assembled?

  • A The buret tap is open.
  • B The funnel in the buret is too long, preventing the buret from being completely filled.
  • C The liquid in the Erlenmeyer flask should be stirred using a stir bar.
  • D The Erlenmeyer flask has not been clamped.
  • E Liquid should be added to the Erlenmeyer flask using a volumetric pipet.
