  • What Colour would blue litmus paper be in water?

    It won't change it's colour.. because it's neither acidic nor basic.. so if you take red litmus paper dip it in distilled water, it'll remain red.. and if you take blue litmus paper and dip it in distilled water it'll remain blue.. If you want to check the pH, you can do that either by using a pH paper, or a pH meter..

  • What is red litmus paper used for?

    pH refers to the acidity and/or alkalinity of a liquid. It is made from mixture of different dyes extracted from lichens applied to paper. Blue litmus paper turns red under acidic conditions and red litmus paper turns blue under basic or alkaline conditions. It's most common use is to test swimming pool water.
B.

What color does litmus paper turn in a solution of baking soda?

Litmus paper has a mixture of different dyes in it. (Interestingly, the dyes are often taken from lichens.) The paper is then placed in a solution, and will turn blue if it is basic or red if it is acidic. If it does not change color, it is fairly neutral (pH in the 5-8 range).

  • What is the characteristics of a base?

    Bases also have certain common characteristics. Mild bases in foods taste bitter and feel slippery. However tasting and touching are not safe ways of testing whether a solution is a base. In fact, some strong bases can burn the skin as badly as strong acids.
