|Noun||1.||volumetric analysis - determination of the volume of gases (or changes in their volume) during combination|
|2.||volumetric analysis - quantitative analysis by the use of definite volumes of standard solutions or reagents|
quantitative analysis, quantitative chemical analysis - chemical analysis to determine the amounts of each element in the substance
acidimetry - volumetric analysis using standard solutions of acids to measure the amount of a base present
alkalimetry - volumetric analysis using standard solutions of alkali to measure the amount of acid present
titration - a measured amount of a solution of unknown concentration is added to a known volume of a second solution until the reaction between them is just complete; the concentration of the unknown solution (the titer) can then be calculated
