What is a synthetic indicator?
what is an natural indicator?
Indicator - A substance which tells us whether something is acidic or basic in nature is known as indicator (in language of chemistry )
Natural Indicator -- An indicator prepared from natural substances is known as natural indicator.
Example - Litmus,Turmeric
Synthetic Indicator - An indicator prepared from artificial substances is known as synthetic indicator
Example -- Phenolphthalein
INDICATOR IS A CHEMICAL SUBSTANCE WHICH CHANGE THEIR COLOUR IN ACCORDANCE TO THE PH OF A SOLUTION.
NATURAL INDICATOR-IT IS A CHEMICAL SUBSTANCE WHICH IS MADE FROM VARIOUS ORGANISMS, LIKE TERMITE,AS WELL AS FROM VARIOUS NATURAL SUBSTANCES. EX---LITMUS
SYNTHETIC LITMUS--IT IS A CHEMICAL SUBSTANCE WHICH IS MADE UP OF VARIOUS ORGANIC DYES AND ARTIFICIAL (SYNTHETIC) SUBSTANCES. EX--PHENOLPHTHALIEN
A SYNTHETIC INDICATORS IS A TYPE OF INDICATOR THAT ALL I KNOW COZ IN TRYING TO RESEARCH WHAT THE HELL IT IS TOO.
A natural indicator is a solution that changes colour at different pH levels, however these indicators are dissimialr to common indicators such as phenolphtalein as natural indicator solutions are dirived from chemicals from oragnic materials such as carrots, berries and beetroot.
different type of naturla indicator ?
Natural Indicators - these are indicators which are natural.For example : turmeric,purple cabbage
Synthetic Indicators - these are artificial or man made.For example : methyl orange,phenolphthalein
