Observations and Chemical Changes

Intro to Chemistry 1

Objective
Certain Chemicals like Bromthymol blue and Phenolphthalein can be added to other chemicals to determine acidity or basicity. Other reactions can be observed as well when different chemicals are added to each other.

Procedure
This experiment involved placing drops of specified chemicals into a well on a 96­well plate. Each well number was recorded along with question number and name of chemicals involved. Two drops of a chemical were placed in a well along with two drops of another chemical. Chemical reactions and color changes were recorded in Data Table 1.

Observations
During the experiments a few problems were encountered. One of the chemicals provided differed slightly from chemical description in the lab manual. The lab manual called for the chemical NH3 which is Ammonia. The chemical provided was an Aqueous Ammonia solution of NH4OH. When holding up the solution of AgNO3 and NH4OH to a light source for 5 minutes it was observed that no reactions took place despite the information contained in the lab manual. Also while testing the household chemical Brite, It was observed that the Bromthymol Blue changed to a green color that was not observed in any other test involving BTB.
Questions
A. Suppose a household product label says it contains sodium hydrogen carbonate (sodium bicarbonate). How would you test this material for the presence of sodium bicarbonate?
To test for the presence of sodium bicarbonate you could collect a sample of the household product and add HCl to it and see if you observe any CO2 bubbles.
B. You know what color phenolphthalein and bromothymol blue turn when testing an acid or a base. Use the empty pipet in the Auxiliary Supplies Bag to test several (at least 3) household items including household cleaning products with bromothymol blue. Rinse the pipet well before using

    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.…

    7. Put 10 drops of 0.5 M nitric acid and 10 drops of 0.5 M phosphoric acid into separate test tubes. Add 1 drop of phenolphthalein to each test tube. Add drops of dilute (0.5 M) sodium hydroxide solution into each of the test tubes until a permanent color change is observed. (NOTE: Phenolphthalein is an acid-base indicator that is colorless in acidic and neutral solutions, but pink in basic solutions). HINT: When writing your net ionic equations: nitric acid is a strong acid while phosphoric acid is a weak…
