COMMON ACID –BASE INDICATORS AND THEIR pH RANGE

Acid-base indicator is a weak organic acid or weak organic base (organic dyes) which shows colour change depending on the pH of the solution or organic dye which show one colour in acidic medium and another colour in basic medium. It can defined as an organic dye which as colour in ionized state and another colour in unionized state.  Examples of indicators are methyl orange, phenolphthalein, methyl red etc.

CHOICE OF INDICATOR FOR ACID-BASE TITRATION

The choice of an indicator for acid-base titration depends on the pH of the mixture at equivalent point and the pK of the indicator. When a strong acid is titrated against a strong base, at the equivalent point, the salt formed does not under hydrolysis and so any suitable indicator can be used. The salt formed when strong acid is titrated against a weak base undergoes hydrolysis to produce excess hydrogen ions. This makes the solution acidic and any indicator that shows colour change in acidic medium is used in the case. Methyl orange changes colour within a pH of 2.9—4.6  and so suitable for this titration.

We are resetting the game!

ClassHall is built on game design principles, and the top performers are the MVPs!

By 11:59 pm Dec. 31st, 2019, we will reset all user performance data, including points and ranks to enable newcomers compete favourably for the limelight!

Prizes will be given to the top 5 MVPs of the Hall of Fame, at the end of the 2019/2020 academic session.

Earn a referral fee per user for recommending us to your students, colleagues and school admins.

Heard of our TRC?

We believe teachers should earn their full reward on earth!

Congratulations to the TOP 5!
