Answer in Organic Chemistry for Khabyaby #225184
Equivalence point: point in titration at which the amount of titrant added is just enough to completely neutralize the analyte solution. At the equivalence point in an acid-base titration, moles of base = moles of acid and the solution only contains salt and water.
The common application of indicators is the detection of end points of titrations. The colour of an indicator alters when the acidity or the oxidizing strength of the solution, or the concentration of a certain chemical species, reaches a critical range of values.
A strong base reacts with water 100% to produce and it’s conjugate acid is very weak, meaning it does not react with water at all. A weak acid or base will react partially with water to produce the hydronium ion or the hydroxide ion, respectively and the conjugate base and conjugate acid, respectively.
