MCQs on Acid-Base Titration

The acid-base titration involves a neutralisation reaction. Here an acid or base of known concentration is used to determine the concentration of a given base or acid by neutralisation. In this type of titration, a drop of an indicator is used at the start, which changes its colour to indicate the endpoint. The indicator changes the colour with the change in the pH of the solution. A suitable indicator should be used to determine the equivalence point and reduce indicator error.
