Colorful Chemistry with Acids and Bases!

While acids and bases have many uses in the world, it may not always be evident that they’re there. For example, you could pull just about any liquid out of your kitchen cabinet, but would you know if it was and acid or a base, simply by looking at it? One way to tell whether something has acidic or alkaline properties is by using an indicator. This is something that can change color when in the presence of an acid or a base, and it can let you know this property of the material you’re testing!
