This bitter chemical compound is called a base. Bases can react with acids to form salts as well as cause other chemical reactions.
Acid or Base Is the bitter chemical compound :)
It doesn't have one. The substance that makes litmus paper litmus paper as opposed to just - well, paper - is called "litmus" and it isn't a specific chemical compound but rather a mixture of 10-15 or so different fairly high molecular weight dyes.
Turn litmus paper blue, Slippery, Tastes bitter (APEX)
no a base turns the red litmus paper blue....
Blue litmus paper would be used and if the chemical is an acid the litmus paper would turn red.
We can differentiate bases with acids by physical and chemical features. A base is slippery when added to water and taste bitter A base turns a red litmus paper blue. An acid is sour in taste. An acid turns blue litmus paper red.
Litmus is a natural dye indicator extracted from lichens.They react with acid (blue litmus turns red)& bases(red litmus turns blue) .Paper made with litmus dye indicators are called litmus paper and used in chemical laboratories.
1. It tastes bitter.2. Feels slippery.3. Turns red litmus paper blue.a base is a substance that tastes bitter, feels slippery, and turns red litmus paper blue.
Litmus paper can be either blue or red. Typically, blue paper is used in chemistry labs to test for pH of a compound.
it is an alkali not acid
It indicates the bases
Bases turn litmus paper blue. They also turn litmus solution ( which is mauve in color originally ) to blue.
The components of the litmus paper cause a chemical reaction between it and the substance being tested causing the color of the paper to change.
yes. it is a chemical reaction
because litmus paper is smeared of some chemical substances which makes litmus paper to change color when reacted with acids or bases
litmus paper is an indicator which contains a chemical. this chemical breaks down when t comes into contact with an acid or alkali. this results in a color change.. the regular litmus which is usually 2 colors change accordingly: red litmus + acid = blue litmus blue litmus + alkali = red litmus note: using moist litmus paper ensures more accurate results : ) hope this info was useful : ) <3 melody : )
No, it can only test whether a chemical is acidic, alkaline or neutral. If it's acidic, it will turn the red litmus paper blue. If it's alkaline, it will turn the blue litmus paper red. But beware, when doing experiment, you must use both of the litmus paper at the same time since if a chemical/solution is neutral, both of the paper won't have any changes.
Then the compound you're dealing with is basic
