Grade 8 science project, Indicators.
I have a science fair project due on the 20th of March. My project is about acids, bases and indicators. My project is more of an invention really. I'm going to write, on a small peice of paper, the word acid in methol red and the word base in phenolpthalein. Like that, when I dip this peice of paper in an acid, the word acid will show up and when I dip it in a base, the word base will show up. This is just an easier way of using pH paper. I need background information for my project, and also so I can do my write-up. I am in grade 8 so I have not yet learned about indicators in class and I am having a very hard time finding a site that explains indicators so I can understand it. Can someone please help me. Or if you know of a good site that might explain it easily please tell me.

Thank you, Tanya

Well, first... research what bases and acids neutrilizes eachother and why. Also, research why certain colors are indicated.
