3 Acid/Base Indicators H-Indicator + H 2 OH 3 O + + Indicator¯ K In Red poppies Blue cornflowers Same dye at different pH: Demo: Red Wine as indicator: Red in acidic (vinegar), and Blue in basic milieu (Na 2 CO 3 ) pH meter to measure the pH of a solution • pH meter is special kind of voltmeter • measures an electrical potential difference between two electrodes immersed in sample solution Combination electrode potential is due to the difference in concentrations of H + between the test solution and reference solution sides of the glass membrane.
