2) CSUN science professor Dean Skorlin tests acidity with litmus paper
for Melissa Lopez, left, and Sandra Berenice Diaz.
In order to do this we squashed a nettle and a dock leaf we looked at their juices and put some litmus paper
on them to see which colour it turned.
The crews used litmus paper
to test the pH of the liquid.
Police have been testing drinks bottles with litmus paper
for alcohol, talking to young people and test purchasing to check shops are not selling to those under age.
This exhibition holds a litmus paper
to taste in the city, examining the historical context while also exploring contemporary preferences.
Similar to Litmus paper
, there is a color correlation chart that allows you to determine the pressure being measured.
If the acid test is the ability to be alluring and soul-stirring regardless of the quality of the racing, the size of the crowd or the clemency of the weather, then Ludlow will turn the litmus paper
pink every time.
If it tastes good (as vinegar), I'd go ahead and use it for salads and cooking and such, though probably not for pickles since you wouldn't know if the acid content is high enough to be safe (unless you get some appropriate litmus paper
and test it).
Inventor Mike Reimer got the idea after years of watching his colleagues tape pieces of pH paper and a military litmus paper
called M8 to their hazardous materials suits.
Another UK supplier could not work out that a French company asking for a supply of "sunflower paper" ("papier de tournesol") wanted litmus paper
The technique is similar to using litmus paper
to determine if a solution is acidic by seeing if the paper changes from blue to pink.
For the rest of us - at least those who prefer ``whys'' to ``hows'' and thus ditched the study of science after Bunsen burners and litmus paper
- learning to love the Net amounts to militarily imposed re-education camp.
