Titrations are used in a wide range of jobs, from wine and cheese preparation, monitoring the pH of aquatic environments, to blood sugar testing.

We will learn how to perform titrations, a fun, precise technique to quantify substances. We will then need to use stoichiometric principles and maths to calculate the concentrations of substances with our titration data. This unit is a great mix of developing lots of essential lab skills along with chemical concepts.

We will use our titration skills to complete an internal assessment entitled "Carry out a practical investigation into a substance present in a consumer product using quantitative analysis", worth 4 credits.
