Elisa Giordano Due: October 11, 2006 Lab #4 Studying the pH of Strong Acid, Weak Acid, Salt, and Buffer Solutions INTRODUCTION The main purpose of this lab was to study the differences in pH between acids, bases, salts, and buffers. The use of Litmus paper, both red and blue, helped determine whether a substance was an acid or a base. Alkacid paper and hydrion paper was also used. The different paper types changed color depending on the acidity or alkalinity of a substance. EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURES “See Lab Hand Out” DATA TABLE Part I.
