Where drop of BTB wicked into acid the color is bright yellow.Where drop of BTB wicked into base thecolor is bright blue.The region where the BTB wicked into the base was larger than the region it wicked into the acid.
4 Apex Learning: Chemistry Labs Copyright © 2017 Quality Science Labs, LLCLAB 1Questions for Observing and Inferring1. For this question use the necessary data from Table 1.1. Even though you don’t know the absolute concentration of the BTB on the paper towel as it wicks out, you can graph its relative concentration. Assume that the highest concentration of BTB is at the center of the drop. For convenience, call this highest concentration “100” and call the concentration at the drops outermost edge “0”. (You do not need to assign units, because the concentrations you are graphing are relative concentrations.)a. Draw a graph that shows the relative concentration of BTB from the center of the drop to the edge of where the paper was wet. b. In the above graph, did you have the concentration go to zero when you could no longer see BTB? Or did you assume BTB was still there albeit at invisible levels? c. Shade in the portions of both graphs where you were making assumptions (saying things you have no evidence for) about the concentration of BTB.2. From your data, could you infer that the paper towel is acidic? Explain. See sample graph below question 3 below.
