A beaker contains 38.0 mL of 0.600 M NaOH solution. A few drops of litmus is added to the solution. What is the color of the solution?
It turns blue
The concentration of
The pH can be calculated by taking the negative of the logarithm of
which indicates a strongly basic solution, and since litmus turns blue in the presence of a basic solution, the solution will turn blue when the litmus is added.
