Natural sciences

Reactions that occur between different kinds of matter: acids and bases

Step 1: It turned blue, because bicarbonate of soda is an alkali

Step 2: No

Step 3: It became lighter

Step 4: It becomes much lighter and lime green

OBSERVATION:

  • Neutral

Content

Activity: to determine what happens when an acid and an alkali are mixed [lo 1.2, lo 1.3]

We have already discovered that a neutral solution is neither an acid nor a base.

What can we expect to happen when and acid and a base are mixed together? Let's find out!

  • Use a Bromothymol blue solution as indicator
  • Other requirements:
  • 100 ml white vinegar
  • 150 ml bicarbonate of soda solution

STEP 1: Add a few drops of the bicarbonate of soda solution to the

Bromothymol blue indicator.

What do you observe?

STEP 2: Add half of the vinegar to the bicarbonate of soda solution

Does this make the solution neutral?

STEP 3: To determine this, you have to add drops of the mixture to the Bromothymol blue indicator.

STEP 4: If no change has occurred, add half of the remaining vinegar to the bicarbonate of soda solution and repeat step 3.

STEP 5: Test the solution again and repeat steps 3 and 4 until there is a change.

OBSERVATION:

  • The vinegar and bicarbonate of soda formed a________________________ solution. It is neither an acid nor a base.

The process by which acids are destroyed by bases, or bases by acids, is called NEUTRALISATION.

Assessment

Learning Outcome 1: The learner will be able to act confidently on curiosity about natural phenomena, and to investigate relationships and solve problems in scientific, technological and environmental contexts.

Assessment Standard 1.2: We know this when the learner conducts investigations and collects data: organises and uses apparatus/equipment or sources to gain and record information;

Assessment Standard 1.3: We know this when the learner evaluates data and communicates findings: generalises in terms of relevant aspects and describes how the data support the generalisation.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
