1 Properties of Acids and Bases (Adapted from Flinn Scientific Acid Base Test Kit I #AP4567) Introduction Battery acid, stomach acid, acid rain just a few acids in our everyday life! What does it mean when something is acidic? How do acids differ from bases? In this lab, the physical and chemical properties of a variety of acids and bases will be examined. Concepts Acids vs. Bases Indicators ph Background Acids and bases make up two groups of substances that can be categorized by their physical and chemical properties. Let's take a look at the distinguishing properties: 1. Taste: Acids, such as lemons or oranges, taste sour. Bases, such as soap, taste bitter. Note: Taste should never be used to identify a lab chemical or unknown substance. This lab does not include a test using taste. 2. Feel: Acid solutions do not feel much different than water; however, they sting if they contact broken skin. Base solutions have a slippery feeling. Note: Lab chemicals or unknown substances should never be touched with the bare skin. This lab does not include a test using feel. 3. Indicators: An indicator is a chemical compound, either on a test paper or in a solution, that changes color depending on the acidity or basicity of a solution and, thus, is used to test for the presence of acids or bases. There are many different kinds of indicators. Litmus paper and phenolphthalein indicator solution are two of the most common. Blue litmus paper turns red when dipped in an acid solution of ph 1 6. Red litmus paper turns blue when dipped in a basic solution of ph In a neutral solution with ph 7, each paper retains its original color. Phenolphthalein indicator solution turns a pink color in a basic solution but remains colorless (sometimes cloudy) in an acidic or neutral solution. 4. Reaction with carbonates: While most bases do not react with carbonates, acids react with carbonates to release carbon dioxide gas. For example: BaC 3 + 2HC1 BaC H 2 5. Reaction with metals : While most bases do not react with metals, acids react with active metals to release hydrogen gas. For example: Fe + 2HCI FeC1 2 + H 2 1

2 6. Power of Hydrogen Ions ph: Acids are defined as substances that release hydrogen ions (H + ) in solution while bases release hydroxide ions (H ) in solution. The positive hydrogen ion and the negative hydroxide ion combine together to form a neutral water molecule (H 2 ) according to the following equation H + + H > H 2 To express the concentration of hydrogen ions in solution, a term called ph (the power of hydrogen ions) is used. Figure 1 provides ph values for some common substances. ph 1 6: Acidic because the concentration of H + ion is greater than the concentration of the H ion. ph 7: Neutral because the concentrations of H + ion and H ion concentrations are equal. ph 8 14: Basic because the concentration of H ion is greater than the concentration of the H + ion. 7. Electrical conductivity: Strong acids and strong bases split fully into their positive and negative ions and therefore both conduct an electrical current quite well. Weak acids and weak bases remain, for the most part, together and in molecular form (with fewer ions in solution) and thus do not conduct an electrical current well. Materials Needed (for each lab group) Hydrochloric acid solution, 3 M, HC1 Acetic acid solution, 3 M, CH 3 H Sodium hydroxide solution, 1 M, NaH Ammonium hydroxide solution, 1 M, NH 4 H Sodium bicarbonate solution, saturated, NaHC 3 Water, distilled Microplate Red litmus paper Blue litmus paper Phenolphthalein indicator solution ph paper ph indicator color card Universal indicator solution Calcium carbonate (marble chips), CaC 3, 6 pieces Matches Copper wire / pellets, Cu, 3 pieces Magnesium ribbon, Mg, 3 pieces Zinc mossy, Zn, 4 pieces 10 ml graduated cylinder Test tube, small Safety Precautions All of the acids and bases used in this lab are very corrosive to eyes, skin, and other body tissues. They are toxic by ingestion. Avoid all body tissue contact. Acetic acid, hydrochloric acid, and ammonium hydroxide are also toxic by inhalation. Avoid breathing the vapors. Wear chemical splash goggles and wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before leaving the laboratory. 2

3 Procedure Part A Litmus Paper and Phenolphthalein Indicators 1. Clean the microplate very well to ensure that solutions do not become contaminated. 2. Add 5 drops of each of the following solutions to different wells of your microplate. Make sure to keep track of where you put each solution. If any of the solutions turn pink during this step, wash the microplate again and start over. 3 M HCl (hydrochloric acid) 1 M NH 4 H (ammonium hydroxide) 3 M CH 3 H (acetic acid) Saturated NaHC 3 (sodium bicarbonate) 1 M NaH (sodium hydroxide) Distilled H 2 3. Using a different piece of dry red litmus paper for each of the 6 solutions, dip the end of the litmus paper into the solution. Remove the paper immediately from each solution, record the color of the paper in Table 1, and place the test paper on a piece of paper towel for disposal. 4. Repeat the procedure in step 3, using a different piece of dry blue litmus paper for each of the 6 solutions. After each test, be sure to record the color of the litmus paper in Table 1. Throw the paper towel and all litmus paper in the garbage can. Do NT dispose of the litmus paper in the sink! 5. To each of the 6 solutions in Row 1, add 3 drops of phenolphthalein indicator solution. Record the color of each solution in Table Use your results from steps 2 4 as well as the Background section on Indicators to classify each of the 6 solutions as acidic, basic, or neutral. Record the classification in Table Rinse the microplate with plenty of water and then dry it. Caution: Take care when rinsing the plates so that solution does not splash out. Part B ph Paper and Universal Indicator 8. Add 5 drops of each of the following solutions to different wells of your microplate. Make sure to keep track of where you put each solution. 3 M HCl (hydrochloric acid) 1 M NH 4 H (ammonium hydroxide) 3 M CH 3 H (acetic acid) Saturated NaHC 3 (sodium bicarbonate) 1 M NaH (sodium hydroxide) Distilled H 2 9. Using a different piece of dry ph paper for each of the 6 solutions, dip the end of the paper into the solution. Remove the paper immediately, record the color of the ph paper in Table 1, and place the ph paper on a piece of paper towel for disposal. 10. Use the ph indicator color chart on the ph paper container to assign a numerical ph value to each solution. Record this value in Table 1. Throw the paper towel and all the ph paper in the garbage can. Do NT dispose of the ph paper in the sink! 11. To each of the 6 solutions, add 3 drops of universal indicator solution. Record the color of each solution in Table Use the ph indicator color card for the universal indicator solution to determine the numerical ph value of each solution. Record this value in Table Rinse the microplate with plenty of water and then dry it. Caution: Take care when rinsing the plates so that solution does not splash out. 3

4 Part C Acid and Base Reactions with Carbonates 14. Add 10 drops of each of the following solutions to different wells of your microplate. Make sure to keep track of where you put each solution. 3 M HCl (hydrochloric acid) 1 M NH 4 H (ammonium hydroxide) 3 M CH 3 H (acetic acid) Saturated NaHC 3 (sodium bicarbonate) 1 M NaH (sodium hydroxide) Distilled H To the solution in each well, add a small piece of calcium carbonate, CaC 3. (Note: CaC 3 is sometimes called marble chips.) Allow the reactions, if any, to proceed for 2 minutes. In Table 1, write "yes" or "no" to record the reactivity of each solution with calcium carbonate. 16. Dump the pieces of calcium carbonate (with the solution) from the microplate into the designated Lab Waste container. Do NT dispose of the calcium carbonate chips in the sink! 17. Rinse the microplate with plenty of water and then dry it. Caution: Take care when rinsing the plates so that solution does not splash out. Part D Acids and Bases Reactions with Metals 18. Add the following to three individual wells in Row 1 of your microplate Zinc mossy, 1 small piece Magnesium ribbon, 1 cm piece Copper pellet, 1 piece 19. Add 10 drops of HCl to each well containing a metal piece. (Be sure there is enough solution to cover the metal.) Compare the speeds of reaction of the metals with this acid. In Table 2, record the reactivity (very fast, fast, moderate, slow, very slow, no reaction) of the HCI with each metal tested. 20. In Row 2 of your microplate, repeat steps 18 and 19, using 10 drops of CH 3 H. Be sure to rank the reactivity of the CH 3 H with each metal as you did in step 18. Record the reactivity in Table In Row 3 of your microplate, repeat steps 18 and 19 using 10 drops of NaH. Be sure to rank the reactivity of the NaH with each metal as you did in step 18. Record the reactivity in Table Dump all pieces of metal (with the solution) in the designate Lab Waste container. Do NT dispose of the metals in the sink! 23. Rinse the microplate with plenty of water and then dry it. Caution: Take care when rinsing the plates so that solution does not splash out. Part E Test for Release of a Gas 24. Place 1 small piece of mossy zinc in the 10mL graduated cylinder. 25. Add about 10 drops of HCl to the zinc and promptly place an inverted test tube directly on top of the graduated cylinder so that it completely covers the graduated cylinder and forms a seal. 26. Continue holding the inverted test tube, allowing the reaction to continue for 2 minute or until the reaction stops. 27. Light a match (or have your lab partner light the match) and hold it about 2 inches to the side of the test tube opening. Quickly move the inverted test tube over the match so that the flame is in the opening of the test tube. Record your observations in Table Dispose of any remaining material or solution into the designated Lab Waste Disposal container. 29. Clean the graduated cylinder by rinsing in with plenty of water. (Caution: Take care when rinsing the graduated cylinder so that solution does not splash out.) 4
