    Oxygen is a poisonous gas , if we inhale it directly from an Oxygen source

    We don't die from oxygen in air , because other gases are in the atmosphere with it


    So I think nitrogen might be a poisonous gas if inhaled directly from the source
    Its just an opinion
    Thanks :)

    Universal Indicator:

    Acid ( Red - Yellow) , Neutral ( Green) , Alkaline ( Blue - Violet)


    Phenolphthalein:

    Alkaline ( Pink) For Strong ( Colourless) , Neutral ( Colourless) , Acid ( Orange)

    Methyl Orange:

    Alkaline: ( Yellow) , Neutral ( Colourless) , Acid ( Red)


    P.S Some of the indicators have a trend in colour , such as methyl orange from 1-14 colour becomes more pale

    Hope that helped,
    Thanks

    Doesn't phenolphthalein only change colour in alkalis? Isn't it supposed to be colourless in acids? and what about the bromo-something blue? what colour changes does that have? PLEASE HELP!

    Very well...

    You have been given 3 Aqueous Solutions. K , L , M

    L was identified as sodium hydroxide

    The first question on the table says

    "Ph of L" L is sodium hydroxide which is an alkali

    Alkalis have a range of Ph from 8-14 . Sodium hydroxide is a strong alkali so you should provide any ph from the range of 11-14

    2nd Question in the table says
    What happens if we drop Sodium hydroxide on Copper sulphate

    When Sodium hydroxide is added to Copper ion , a Blue precipitate is formed and does not dissolve in Excess of Sodium Hydroxide

    Only when Excess ammonia is added , It dissolves giving a Pale blue solution as mentioned in the table


    3rd Question in the table says
    If Sodium Hydroxide was added to Aluminium Sulphate
    Results would be

    White precipitate , If in excess would dissolve giving a colourless solution

    K is identified as Aqueous Ammonia

    and M is identified as Hydrochloric acid duo to acidification and adding silver nitrate and forming a white ppt. which is a typical for a chloride ion test , Donot provide only chloride ion for 2 marks provide a chloride compound such as Hydrochloric acid.

    Thanks a lot. Just one more question - Does phenolphthalein change colours in strong acids and if it does, what colour change happens?

    Again thank you so very much.
