Indicators and the pH scale


Solutions can be acidic, alkaline or neutral:


  • an acidic solution is when an acid is dissolved in water
  • an alkaline solution is when an alkali is dissolved in water
  • solutions that are neither acidic nor alkaline are neutral.

Pure water is neutral.


An indicator is a substance that changes colour when added to an acidic or alkaline solution.


In a laboratory either Litmus or Universal Indicators are used. Litmus can only tell us if a substance is an acid or alkali while Universal Indicator tells us how strong the acid or alkali is.
