Food tests 5.03

Experiment 5. Discussion - answers
I A blue colour will probably be apparent at .01%. 2 If the student says, however, that .01% is the least concentration that iodine will detect, he or she is overlooking the fact that concentrations intermediate between .01 and .001% have not been tested. Iodine may very well give results with .005% starch. 3 In theory there must come a point in a serial dilution when the sample withdrawn by the pipette may contain no molecules of solute at all. Provided one has a large enough volume of a . 0001 % solution, there should be some starch molecules present.
