E.Q.: What is an indicator?

Std. 7-5.6


E q what is an indicator

-Indicators are substances that can be used to determine whether a solution is acidic, basic, or neutral.

Types of Indicators

  • Litmuspaper

    Has a special dye on it that changes colors in the presence of an acid or base.

    Blue litmus paper turns red in an acid and stays blue in a base. (Remember:Blue to RedAcid (BRA))

    Red litmus paper turns blue in a base and stays red in an acid. (Remember: Red to BlueBase (RBB))

    Blue and red litmus paper turn violet in a solution that is neutral (neither an acid or base).

Types of Indicators (continued)

2. pHpaper

  • Has a range of colors depending on the pH of the solution.

  • The color of the paper is compared to the chart on the vial to determine the pH.

    3. Phenolpthalein

  • Is used to test for the presence of a base.

  • It is a colorless chemical that turns magenta(bright pink) in a base.

  • Stays colorless in neutral or acidic solutions.
