Base A base in chemistry is a substance that can accept hydrogen ions Bases can be thought of as the chemical opposite of acids basically base is the opposite of ACID.
Universal indicator A Universal indicator is a pH indicator composed of a blend of several compounds that exhibits several smooth colors changes over a pH value range from 1-14 to indicate the acidity or basicity of solutions. Definition: A universal indicator is typically composed of water, propan-1-l, phenolphthalein sodium salt, sodium hydroxide, methyl red, bromothymol blue monosodium salt, and thymol blue monosodium salt.
