Introductory Titrimetric and Gravimetric Analysis discusses the different types of titration and the weighing of different solutions in solid form. Coverage is made on acid- base titration, argentometric titrations, and oxidation- reduction titrations. Iodometric titrations and complexometric titrations are also explained. Extensive discussion on each of the titration method, along with some examples and laboratory experiments, is given. The process of weight measurement of damp powder is one example of the experiments. The book is a manual that guides a student to the correct ways of conducting an experiment made on such solutions as sodium hydroxide using hydrochloric acid and oxalic acid. Outcome of such experiments in terms of composition, weight of solutions, and measurement of pressure in certain environment is tabulated and briefly explained. Logarithms and antilogarithms are included at the end of the book. The text will serve as a good laboratory manual for students preparing for science examination as well as for chemists and chemical engineers.
