The difference between the Equivalence Point and Endpoint in a Titration

In: Chemistry

The equivalent point is just the point were the exact same number of equivalents of both species are present in the solution at the same time.

The end point is similar, but not the same, it has more to do with ph of the solution

Equivalence point is the exact instance when there’s the same amount of the acid and base form of whatever in the solution. The endpoint is based off whatever you’re using to indicate that the titration is complete, for example the point at which the indicator changes color. Ideally if you choose an appropriate indicator they would be the same but there will always be some experimental error known as titration error.
