Results/Conclusion

In test number one we added vinegar and wanted to see if the Mysterious powder would fizz, and it did so that was a positive! In test number two we added water to the powder to the powder and wanted to see if the Mysterious powder would match a different powder had a Ph of 8 and it was successful because we found out that a powder we tested had a ph of 8! In our third test we were trying to see if the Mysterious powder had starch and it was also successful because the powder turned a black brown type color which indicated that there was starch in it! In our final test with the pr and were trying to see if there was any acids in there powder and there wasn't because it didn't turn gold like we wanted it to instead it turned red and partially pink:(.
