In this task I had to do a series of titrations to find out the concentration of the alcohol that Mrs. Brown had so that we could compare it to the suspects’ drinks to see who she was with that night before they found her unconscious. A titration is a volumetric analysis technique where a solution of known concentration is used to determine the concentration of an unknown solution and it is also used to neutralise a reaction by balancing out the solution. A volumetric analysis is a chemical procedure which determines the concentration of a solution; you have to react a known solution with an unknown one to find out the concentration of the unknown acid. Titrations can be used in practically in any industry that relies on something that has a PH in it like wineries, dairy farms, mining corporations, cleaning material manufacturers, juice makers, food makers, cosmetic industries, health industries, water plants, and paint makers. It’s usually used as a way to make sure that something's pH is suitable for humans to be close to it. However, it is also used to make sure that products such as cleaning products, remove bacteria. Cleaning products need to be slightly acidic for these products to work so they titrate to get the right molarity. They are several types of different titrations, these are; Acid based titrations, a acid-based titration is a neutralisation reaction that is used in the lab in order to determine an unknown concentration of acid or base. The moles of acid equal the moles of base/acid at the equivalence point. Redox titrations, a Redox titration (also called oxidation-reduction titration) is a type of titration based on a Redox reaction between the analyte and titrant. Complexometric titration, a Complexometric titration is a form of a volumetric analysis as the formation of a coloured solution is used to indicate the end point of a titration.
