my group thinks the mysterious powder consists of the following three powders: orange green and yellow. we think that because orange fizzed and it has the closed PH to the mysterious powder. we think its yellow because it turned the same color with PT and it has a simular PH of 6. we think its green because it turned black when iodine was added and it was the only one to have a positive starch test out of the 6 powders.
