an operation, used in volumetric analysis, in which a measured amount of one solution is added to a known quantity of another solution until the reaction between the two is complete. If the concentration of one solution is known, that of the other can be calculated

How to use titration in a sentence
During the titration, the solution rapidly became dark brown.Some Constituents of the Poison Ivy Plant: (Rhus Toxicodendron) | William Anderson Syme
It has been assumed in these rules that the titration has yielded proportional results; but these are not always obtained.
If an excess, subtract it from the result of each titration; if a deficit, add it; and use the standard in the usual way.
In the titration of iron by permanganate solution there are two reactions.
Very similar to this last problem is the question suggested under the head "Indirect titration" (p. 43).
Scientific definitions for titration
The process or operation of determining the concentration of a substance in solution. Titration is performed by adding to a known volume of the solution a standard reagent of known concentration in carefully measured amounts until a reaction of definite and known proportion is completed (as shown by a color change or by electrical measurement) and then calculating the unknown concentration.
