Introduction to Indicators and Acid-Base Titrations

An acid was originally defined by Svante Arrhenius as a substance which releases hydrogen ions in solution and a base is a substance which releases a hydroxide ion in solution.  An indicator is a proton donor/acceptor and changes color depending on how many hydrogen ions are present in solution.  In this experiment, pH titrations will be explored and the effects of weak acids and strong acids have on the titration.
