About This Chapter
Indicators in the Acidic Environment - Chapter Summary
While going through these lessons, you can deepen your understanding of indicators in the acidic environment. Studying this chapter can help you master the concept of pH, including alkalinity and acidity. This self-paced chapter can also help you comprehend acid-base indicators. After reviewing the lessons, you should be ready to:
- Explain the differences between acidic, basic, and neutral solutions
- Describe the process of testing a solution using an acid-base indicator
- List common uses of acid-base indicators
- Discuss soil chemistry and fertility
These lessons can help you quickly get up to speed on indicators in the acidic environment. You can use the Help feature to submit questions to instructors if you get stuck on a topic. Depending on your needs, you can study all the lessons for a more comprehensive review or just focus on specific topics.
1. Acidic, Basic & Neutral Solutions: Determining pH
After watching this video, you will be able to explain the difference between acidic, basic, and neutral solutions and explain the concept of pH. A short quiz will follow.
2. Acid-Base Indicator: Definition & Concept
Blue, orange, yellow, and red are just some of the colors you may see when testing a solution using an acid-base indicator. Continue reading to learn about acid-base indicators and how the process works.
3. Acid-Base Indicators: Uses & Examples
Sure, you've heard of acids and bases, but do you know all of the places where people need to monitor the level of acids and bases? From swimming pools to gardens, this lesson will discuss acid-base indicators and their uses.
4. Soil Chemistry & Fertility
This lesson explores soil chemistry and fertility. In doing so, it defines pH and differentiates between alkaline and acidic and how each affect vegetation and solubility.
