Using the terms diffusion, NaOH, and phenolphthalein, explain how the pink color showed how far into the agar cube the solution went.

    Okay, so three things here: (1) Greater NaOH turns phenolphthalein what colour? (Hint: OH- is a base) (2) How would NaOH move into the cube?

    1) it turns pink 2) we soaked it for ten minutes making the agar cube looked framed by pink

    Okay, so how would you describe how the pink/phenolphthalein showed the NaOH had "diffusing" into the cube?
