The indicator chemical links all return the user to this page, which tells us nothing about the individual chemical structures, properties, etc. These need to be broken out like other chemicals. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 18:44, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
Method of measuring ph value using litmus papers
on my report it says place a fresh piece of blue litmus paper in a test tube of water.using a straw,blow gently into the water for several minutes,until a change in the litmus paper occurs.what does the change show about exhaled breath when it dissolves in water?
And what do you want to know?T.vanschaik 21:53, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
If you exhale into the water and it shows an acidic change, it's likely carbonic (or should that be carboxylic? I forget) acid formed by the dissasociation of CO2 in water. 22.214.171.124 04:45, 30 November 2006 (UTC)
- Yes, it's carbonic acid, but the report asks the student to do a simple experiment so the logical thing would be to actually do it.
the same as "indicator strips"?
is litmus paper analogous to "indicator strips" that my textbook talks about? whoops, forgot to sign. --126.96.36.199 12:32, 6 May 2007 (UTC)
- Nobody seems to use capital letters anymore... Litmus is a type of pH indicator. There are many of them, some of which come in the form of strips of paper soaked in the indicator compound. Richard001 06:24, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
Proposed move (2008)
I'm a fan of Michael Phelps, but the reference to him in this article seems completely irrelevant. If more knowledgeable, wikipedia-savvy users think it's okay, then his name should at least be capitalized. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 02:19, 16 October 2008 (UTC)
I need to research about litmus paper but there doesn't seem to be enough info!!! Can you please write more info??
More information needed
I want to know what litmus paper is. What is it? I am researching this for an assignment so I'd like the info ASAP. No offence, but I get really angry and impatient when I wait for a response for a really long time, so you know what I'm like. Either create a page on litmus paper, or include some more precise info on this!!!!! (before I get angry!!!)
