Many types of chemical analyses are made using a method in which a constituent is titrated with a solution of known strength to an indicator endpoint. Such a solution is referred to as a standard solution. From the volume and concentration of standard solution used in the titration, and the sample size, the concentration of the constituent in the sample can be calculated.
