Unformatted text preview: weakest of the three acids, followed by phosphoric acid and hydrochloric acid being the strongest. In order to fully explore the nature of chemical reactions, it is important to also explore the different types of chemical reactions. The different types of reactions were observed in several opportunities during the experiment and observations were taken on them to later determine what type of reaction they were. If a precipitate formed then it was determined that the reaction was a precipitate reaction. Because of the application of the universal indicator, color change was the main observation associated with the acid-base reactions. The more dramatic observations of the reactions, such as bright lights and rise in temperature were associated with the redox reactions. The experiment was used to show the properties of chemical reactions by careful observation of the reactions before, during and after it occurred....
