pH paper and record the result in your notebook. Then, add 3 drops of mineral oil to a watch glass and spread it around to form a thin layer. Add 5 drops of the soap solution from test tube 1 and use it to wash the mineral oil from the watch glass and record your observations regarding the cleaning effectiveness of the soap in your notebook. Dry the watch glass with a paper towel and repeat this step one more time times using the other sample (test tube 2). Record your observations in your notebook. Lastly, add 2 drops of 0.5 M CaCl2 to each test tube and record your observations in yournotebook. Dispose of all your soap solutions and any remaining soap samples as directed by yourinstructor.Post-Lab Questions and ResultResultTriglyceride source:Veggie oilAppearance of soap sample:It is like a butter, a little bit solid and creamypH of soap sample:10.0Soap sample evaluationSampleCleaning effectivenessAddition of CaCl2pHYour soapMediumThe soap gather to the CaCl2.There is precipitation and alittle bit scum.±10.0(Blue)CommercialdetergentReally good There is nothing change.±7.0(Yellow)
