    So i figured out the concentratino for different solutions. However, i think i made a mistake - freshly squashed orange juice took three drops for the colour to change and the concentration is less compared to the others. Shouldn't the concentration should be more because there is a lot more of vitamin C in it?:confused:

    It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out MarkedbyTeachers.com, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK.

    They've got over 181,000+ coursework, essays, homeworks etc.. all written by GCSE, A Level, University and IB students across all topics. You get access either by publishing some of your own work, or paying £4.99 for a month's access. Both ways give you unlimited access to all of the essays.

    All their documents are submitted to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software, so it can't be misused, and the site's used by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.

    What's more, you can take a look around the site and preview the work absolutely free. Click here to find out more...

    It should but orange is less acidic than other citrus fruits.

    If it's more concentrated, you would need fewer drops for it to change the colour of the DCPIP.
