Acid—Base Titration Curves

  • William B. Guenther


The familiar curves of pH versus volume of titrant added are displayed and discussed in many texts. Here we shall examine only a few mathematical aspects which follow from our previous treatment and which bear upon the reliability of the end point determination.
