Analytical Chemistry:- Acid-Base Analysis

This is an MCQ-based quiz for GRE on the topic of Acid-Base Analysis.

An acid-base titration is a method of quantitative analysis for determining the concentration of an acid or base by exactly neutralizing it with a standard solution of base or acid having a known concentration. A pH indicator is used to monitor the progress of the acid-base reaction.
