A scientist wants to test how much of an acid can be added to a solution before the pH of the solution changes to below a certain point. The starting pH of the solution is 6.0, and the scientist wants to know when the pH of the solution changes to below 5.0. Which pH indicator should the scientist use? A.Phenolphthalein, which changes from colorless to purple around a pH of 8.3 B.Cresol red, which changes from yellow to purple around a pH of 7.2 C.Congo red, which changes from red to violet around a pH of 5.0 D.thymolphthalein, which changes from colorless to blue around a pH

    Congo red is the sodium salt of 3,3'-bis. It is a secondary diazo dye. Congo red is water soluble, yielding a red colloidal solution; its solubility is better in organic solvents such as ethanol.

    the clue is in the option congo red changes to to violet at 5 pH so that is your indicator at that pH level
