Acids and Bases

Length: 5 Pages 1238 Words

What substances turned into Acids? & What substances turned into Bases? Hypothesis: Procedure: Pour about three milliliters of your sample in each of three test tubes. Pour the same amount on a watch glass. In the first test tube put in two drops of methyl orange and record the color. In the second test tube, put in two drops of bromothymol blue and record the color. In the third test tube, add two drops of phenothalein and record the color. Using the watch glass sample, touch the tips of a red and a blue litmus paper and record the colors. Then touch the tip of a piece of pH Paper and record the color and match the color to the chart and record the pH.

Bases are compounds made up of metallic elements or polyotomic ions combined with hydroxyl radicals. They react with metals to release hydrogen and have a pH less than 7.

So anything on my chart that is blue under litmus is Bases. They are formed when some metals react with water and have a pH above 7. So anything that turned red in my chart was an acid. So from my results it was very easy to clarify which substance was an acid and which one was a base.
