Volumetric Analysis


A great resource for students and teachers of quantative chemistry. Students can use the program to generate titration problems for drills and learn about volumetric analysis. Students and teachers can use the program to calculate and check answers to real titrations. Covers Acid-Base and Redox titrations. An easy 4 step method is used to work out solutions which are displayed in a separate window, step by step.

Volumetric Analysis v2.1 can be used:

  • For titration problem drills,
  • As a quick way to calculate titration solutions (with worked answers),
  • To check your own answers in real titrations,
  • By teachers to generate an almost unlimited number of titration problems for testing.

Using the Volumetric Analysis program

3 Different Titration Types

    • Acid-Base
    • Oxidant-Reductant
    • Iodine-Thiosulphate
  • Select Reactants from the two dropdown boxes,
  • Enter your own Data,
  • Set which reactant is the standard solution
  • or
  • Randomly generate it:
  • Randomly generate questions, with new settings for Titration Type, Reactants and data
  • Randomly generate data for the current question settings
  • Show or Hides the Data box or Question Area parts of the display
  • Show Volume in mL and L or cm³ and dm³
  • Pop up the Windows calculator
  • Show a worked solution to the problem using 4 step method

Solving Volumetric Analysis Problems

A Four Step process is used in the Volumetric Analysis Solution window

Solution Window

Each click of the Next Step button moves one step closer to answering the question

Step 1.  Balanced Equation(s) . This step is need to find the mole ratio used in step 3 (moles of unknown : moles of known)

Step 2.   moles of the “known” reagent, using n=cv (or sometimes n=m/M)

Step 3.   moles of the “unknown” reagent, worked out by using the first two steps,
i.e. mole ratio of (unknown / known) X moles of known

Step 4.    the final step (answering the question!), using step 3 and c=n/v (or sometimes m=nM) to calculate the concentration, or mass or percentage etc. of the unknown
