Introduction: The purpose of this lab was to take a variety of solutions and test their pH. Due to materials available pH strips were the only testing tools available. A table is setup to compare the strip color to its pH level. Four known solutions including bleach, lemon juice, soda, and baking soda were used. There was also an unknown solution in which the pH level was used to determine which solution it was. The pH scale is 1-14, a pH of 7 is neutral, less than 7 is acidic, and greater than 7 is acidic.
Materials:
* pH strips * 20 test tubes * Disposable transfer pipettes * Indicators * Methyl Orange * Bromocresol green * Bromocresol purple * Phenol red * Solutions included * Bleach * Lemon juice * Lemon-lime soda * Baking soda solution * One unknown

Procedure: The experiment started off with 20 test tubes. Four were filled up with 5mL of each solution. At this point it is advised to dip the pH paper into the solution to get the pH level for 30 seconds. This will be compared to the chart on the container in which the strips came in. Then place one drop of each indicator into each separate tube. For example, 5mL of bleach into four separate test tubes. Then follow up by putting methyl orange in one, bromocresol green in the next, etc. The color of the tube is to be compared with the color chart to determine pH. Once this is complete take a new pH test strip and place it in each solution with an indicator for 30 seconds and determine the pH by comparing it with the chart on the strips container.
Results: Bleach was 5-6 by itself. With green it was a 9-10, with red it was a 1-3, with orange it was a 6-7, with purple it was a 12-14. Lemon juice was a 3-4 by itself. With orange it was a 2-3, with green, purple, and red it was a 5-7. Soda was a 3 by itself. With orange it was a 2-3, with green it was a 6-7, with purple and red it was a 7-8. Baking soda was a 9-10 by

    Lab Report: Purpose: The Objective of this lab was to learn how to measure the pH (or acidity) of commonly known fluids, using the correct tools and procedures. To then use that data to document the changes noticed when mixing those same fluids and changing their respective pH levels. Materials: In order to conduct this experiment several pieces of equipment and other materials were needed. The first item was a graduated cylinder, which was used in order to measure out the precise…

    Question 1 Critique Dr. Honeydew’s report. Specifically, discuss what is missing and how the missing information should have been presented. First the PH measurements, Dr. honey dew does not explain how the PH device was calibrated or if the blood sample was added or mixed with anything prior to the measuring of the pH (like water, etc.). In regards to the absorption spectroscopy, the method by which the concentration was obtained is questionable. Was the concentration known before the experiment…

    Ph Lab Report Bryon Kim 12­30­13 B(2) Biology Background information/Research PH paper (litmus paper) determines how acidic or how basic a substance is. The paper changes color accordingly to color code on the pH scale. The pH scale starts from 0 to 14. The lower the number the more acidic it is. Zero is the most acidic, and 14 is the most basic while 7 is the neutral number for example water. Examples of an acid is lemon juice or multi purpose cleaner. Examples of a basic substance is shampoo or liquid soap…

    can reach a new pH level by interacting with soil. If water has a pH that is too high or too low, it can be life threatening to aquatic species and can corrode metal structures. After finding this out, I decided to test if water could reach an extreme pH just by interacting with soil around it. The question for this experiment therefore became the following. Will interaction with soil change the pH of water? I hypothesized that if water interacts with soil for three days, then the pH of the water will…
