Students will learn about acids and bases through a class discussion and then test a dilute acid and dilute base with neutral litmus paper to learn how the paper indicates something is acidic or basic. Once that skill is learned they can move on to test some common items that would be found around their house to determine if they are acids or bases. Optional: Extra litmus paper is included to test more items either from home or around the school building for a greater understanding of acids and bases. The activity contains enough materials for 6 groups of students.

Safety Data Sheet

Colorimetric or turbidimetric methods of analysis have been developed for most of the elements and ionic species. These methods can be employed to quickly determine the chemical composition of an unknown substance. Before attempting to analyze an unknown it is useful to develop a logical process to follow. Care must be taken in sampling, collecting and washing precipitates, performing confirmatory tests and most importantly, recording data. It is also good laboratory practice to always analyze a known with each unknown as a double check on the reagents being used.

The unknowns will be analyzed for one of six possible anions: Cl-, Br-, I-, PO42-, NO3-, and SO42-. A standard solution for each anion will also be run.
