An Experience How can a chemical change be observed?


the goal:

Explanation of how we can infer a chemical change has occurred.

Materials and tools:

Ammonia solution - Distilled water - Glass beaker - Universal indicator - Effervescent tablets.


1- Put a quantity of distilled water in the glass.

2- Add drops of ammonia solution into the water in the glass, and observe what happens.

3- Put drops of universal indicator into the solution and observe the color that forms.

4- Add an effervescent tablet to the solution and observe what happens.


We observe a color change from blue to orange, and we notice the formation of foam from the effervescent tablet, indicating the presence of gas.


We can observe chemical changes through a change in color, the occurrence of a reaction or fizzing, or a change in temperature.
