Title: Observations of Chemical Changes

Purpose: To observe some properties of chemical reactions and associate them with everyday household cleaning products.

Procedure: In order to complete this experiment, I had to set up and organize my lab table. I used my 24-well plate, my 96-well plate, and the first experiment bag which included all of the necessary chemicals. I also had to gather 3 household cleaning products and a pipet in order to test them as well. The procedure involved was putting 2 drops of one chemical in the 96-well plate, and then adding 2 drops of a second chemical in the same well. I observed the reaction and recorded what change, if any, took place after looking at them against a white background and a black background. I then proceeded on to the next two chemicals, until all chemicals had been tested.

Data Table 1: Chemicals Provided in Lab Kit.
Well # Chemicals Reaction
A-1 NaHCO3 and HCl-C02 Remained clear, very bubbly, almost as if forming a gas, which it was. Carbon Dioxide.
B-1 HCl and BTB The results of adding the blue indicator was a color change. It turned orange, indicating acidity.
C-1 NH3 and BTB It remained blue, indicating a base.
D-1 HCl and blue dye The mixture turned green.
E-1 Blue dye and NaOCl Blue at first, then when HCL was added to the mix, it turned green.
F-1 Kl and Pb(NO3)2 Very yellow and dense looking.
G-1 NaOH and phenolphthalein Reaction was a purplish/pink color
H-1 HCl and phenolphthalein Nothing happened, no reaction, remained colorless
A-2 NaOH and AgNO3¬ Muddy brown in color, almost grit-like appearance
B-2 AgNO3¬ and NH3 Nothing seemed to happen, no reaction, but when placed on a paper towel and exposed to sunlight, the paper turned rust colored, with some silvery areas. The paper towel was also extremely stiff.
C-3 NH3 and CuSo4 Reaction was cloudy blue in color

    We placed the zinc inside the beaker and slowly poured the hydrochloric acid into the beaker. As soon as the acid entered the beaker, there was a sizzling sound and bubbles started to form as we add more of the substance in. When the bubbles were forming, we could see a steam of gas coming out of the beaker. After 10 minutes, we noticed bits of zinc were floating on top of the hydrochloric acid and lining the beaker. I lifted the beaker and felt the bottom and it felt warm, which meant the reaction was still happening. After 20 minutes, we added water into the zinc and hydrochloric acid to stop the reaction and we observed a slight cloudy colour (still clear) forming as we slowly pour the water in the beaker.…

    There are solutions which have the property of changing their color when they come in contact with an acidic or basic environment. An example of this was vinegar, when it contact the litmus and the pH paper, it became red. Then ,we check the pH indicator and find out that vinegar was acidic on both paper ,also , that the pH level was 2.4.Also the same thing happen with the water and nail polish remover. The color it became when it contact the paper was dark blue, which is basic ,and the pH level is 10.9. The water turn green on the litmus and pH paper when it contact the paper, which is neutral, and the pH level is 7.…
