Determine the pH of vegetable and fruit juices using pH paper and universal indicator
Test tubes, measuring cylinder, glass rod, watch glass, vegetable and fruit juices, universal indicator solution and pH paper.
1. Using pH Paper. Take some clean and dry test tubes and place various samples of vegetable and fruit juices in each of them.
Now put one or two drops of each sample on different strips of pH papers. Note the colour formed on each strip and compare the shade with those on colour chart. Record the pH of the compared shade.
2. Using Indicator Solution. Take 10 ml of different juices in different test tubes with the help of measuring cylinder. Put a few drops of universal indicator in each of them. Note the colour of each solution and compare with those on indicator bottle. Record the approximate pH of each.
