How can you tell the difference between sodium carbonate and sodium bicarbonate?
they have different pH values. Na2CO3's is 10 and NaHCO3's is 8.
Correct! Please post the next question.

Look at the flame with cobalt blue glass to filter out any orange/ yellow light from the flames.

Light travels from air into a glass fragment with an angle of incidence of 42 degrees. The angle of refraction at the end of the fragment is 18 degrees.
Calculate the index of refraction of the glass. Round to the nearest hundredth.

asinθ1=bsinθ2
b=asinθ1/sinθ2
=asin42°/sin18°
a=1.00
∴ b=2.17
