Chem. Lab 7
1. What is the color ofbromophenol blue in an acid? In a base?
It is colored yellow in acid and blue in a base.
2. How did you get the solution to change from blue to yellow?
The pH level change affected the change in colors. Low levels Of C02 or acid in solution
with bromothymol blue indicator will appear blue. As the level Of C02 or acid increases,
it will allow the solution to adopt a yellow hue.
3. Why did the solution change from blue to yellow (What chemical reaction happened)?
The chemical reaction is called an indicator.
4. How did you get the solution to change from yellow to blue?
The reaction was reversed.
5. Why did the solution change from yellow to blue (What chemical reaction happened)?
Since the reaction was reversed the solution changed colors, and this is known as an
6. After Procedure Step 3, the solution in Well Al was in equilibrium. What happened to the
solution in Well Al during Procedure Step 5? Did the equilibrium shift? Explain this on the basis
Of the Le Chatelier Principle?
Le Chateliers prmciple states that the concentration Of a product is reduced in a chemical
reaction that was in equilibrium. The equilibrium shifts to the right to favor the formation
Of products. Le Chateliers principle says that chemical reactions in equilibrium
experience a disturbance in the reaction conditions that will make the equilibrium to shift
in the opposing direction Of the change to restore the steady-state. If the concentration Of
a product is reduced, the equilibrium will shift to the left to try to restore the initial
amount Of product and achieve the steady-state again.

7. Why did the colors in the Wells A1 and A3 change a second time in Procedure Steps 7 and 8?
Was this because Of reversible reactions?
Yes, due to the nature ofthe reaction.
Beloved Analysis Questions, p. 236-324 (end)
How is it that Sethe can now relate to Baby Suggs contemplation Of color? (237)
In her final days, Baby Suggs pondered color because she "never had time" before. As
an ex-slave and an oppressed individual, Baby Suggs lived in a world Of black and white,
figuratively and literally. African Americans also never had a sense Of ownership Of
anything, so when she had come to rest, she finally could appreciate colors the world
had to offer. This is also the result Of the murder Of Beloved, which essentially destroyed
Baby Suggs. She pondered all the colors, but could never get to red, most likely
because it reminded her Of Beloved's blood at the time Of her death.
What happened to Sethe's mother's face? Interpret this both literally and
Sethe's mother had worn the bit so many times, that it disfigured her face into looking as
if she had a permanent smile. However, this has symbolic significance because she
appeared to smile, even when she was not smiling. This represents the taking away Of
her vitality and Of her happiness by the white slave masters. It also may represent an
irony, in which she wished to be happy, but in reality, was living a terrible life.
What's a Saturday girl, and how is Sethe saved from being one? (240-241)
Saturday girl is a girl who works at the local slaughterhouse on Saturdays. She almost
became one herself following her release from jail, as a way to pay for Beloved's
headstone. However, the Bodwins save her from this fate by getting her a cooking job at
What's significant about Baby Suggs getting knocked down in the Misery?
Baby Suggs was always afraid Of getting knocked down by a white man in front Of her
children. She didn't want her kids to see her get knocked down because it would make
them go crazy. However, Suggs witnessed whitemen take down Sethe and subsequently
got knocked down by white men. She became depressed. Baby Suggs lost her
happiness and pride at this moment where she lost to white men.
Why does Denver think Beloved belongs to her (and though it isn't written, there's
a suggestion Of
Denver believes Beloved belongs to her and only her because Of their past together.
Denver drank Beloved's blood in the process Of being breastfed. She was the only one
to accompany Beloved with a favorable attitude when she was merely a Ionesome spirit
in the house. Denver believes that this formed an unbreakable connection between the
two Of them.
What accounts for the shift in style Of these three chapters? Who narrates each
one, and what effect is achieved? (235-256) (hint: see last paragraph on p. 235)
****** Result for Image/Page 2 ******
There is a shift between the past chapters and these three as these parts specifically
divulge the thoughts Of the women Of 124. These are more streams-of-consciousness,
rather than narration Of the past. Each Of these chapters are narrated by a different
person. Sethe narrates the first one, Denver the second, and Beloved the third.
What are some Of the atrocities committed, during the cramped boat ride
described in Beloved's stream-of-consciousness chapter?
The slaves depicted in this chapter are left dehydrated and without water. T hey can't
even cry because their bodies are so deprived Of it. T hey get thrown into the ocean, and
are put into chained collars in a way that is much less than humane.
Why is Sixo laughing at his execution? What does he mean by "Seven-O"?
Sixo is laughing at his execution because he knows that his lover, Thirty-Mile woman
has escaped with his unborn baby, "Seven-O". While he is going to die, he knows that a
part Of him will still live on in his unborn baby.
9. What's the irony behind Stamp Paid's wife's name? (look up "Queen Vashti" on
Queen Vashti was Queen Of Persia and the first wife Of Persian King Ahasuerus. She is
viewed as an independent-minded heroine in feminist interpretations Of the Purim story as
she was banished for her refusal to appear at the king's banquet to show her beauty as the
king wished. Stamp Paid's wife's name is ironic because she did not stand up for herself
when she was forced to have sex with someone who was not Stamp Paid.
IO. What's the meaning behind Sethe's physical transformation? (280-281)
Sethe becomes very small and skinny as Beloved grows larger, almost on the verge Of
looking pregnant. It represents how her daughter is pulling out her spirit and even
physical presence to further herself. Essentially, as Sethe is being drained, Beloved is
almost absorbing all Of her.
11. Why does Denver have such difficulty leaving 124? How do Suggs words
inspire her? (286-288)
Denver has difficulty leave 124 because she has not left in a long time and she does not
know anyone who can help her besides Lady Jones and Stamp Paid. She is also afraid
Of encountering white people after hearing about all Of the horrible things that some Of
them have done.
12. What is meant by Denver's inauguration into the world as a woman? (292)
Up until this point, every interaction and experience that Denver has had has been
immature. Currently, she is being forced to be responsible and take care Of her other
family members. This push to be independent and actually ask others for help shows her
development into a mature woman.

13. How is the community around 124 a "sweet thorny place"?
The community is sweet yet thorny because they have ostracized Sethe and her family
for many years after What happened in the shed. However, even though they have
harbored a certain resentment against them for many years, they still come together to
help Sethe expel a potentially evil spirit from her home.
14. What, ultimately, was Sethe trying to protect Beloved (and all Of her family)
Sethe was trying to protect all Of her family from being taken into slavery once again.
Once she mistook Edward for school teacher (a white and very unforgiving slave
master), she jumped into action in a different way than she had eighteen years ago.
Instead Of mercy killing her children, she instead chose to act out against this potential
intruder and fight him off with an ice pick.
15. How could Sethe, according to Denver, not want Beloved's forgiveness, but
her refusal? (297)
Denver saw how badly Sethe felt for What she did to Beloved when she was a
child. She believes that Sethe was not seeking forgiveness because she wanted to have
the punishment she thought she deserved for killing her child. In a parallel to Crime and
Punishment, readers saw how Sethe needed that release, the punishment for her deeds.
16. How does Ella claim to understand what Sethe did in the shed? (301-302, 305)
Ella understands the rage that Sethe had in that situation, just not her reaction to it. As a
slave, she was used by a father and son, so she was very well aware Of the atrocities
that were regularly committed, and understood why she wouldn't want her daughter
going there, but she believed the reaction to be prideful and misdirected.
17. In answer to Paul D.'s question about Beloved being her sister, Denver says,
"At times I think she was—more." How was she "more"? (314)
After Beloved has gone, Denver realizes that she was never just a normal girl
that had returned to her family. When she tells Paul D that she thinks she was something
more she means that in the supernatural sense. She had seen Beloved fall apart at
times and exert her influence on others- even suck the life out Of Sethe. She knew that
Beloved was something more because these unnatural occurrences that she reflected
upon simply had no other explanation.
18. What favor does Paul return to Sethe, in their meeting in Baby Suggs'
Paul D restores Sethe's will to keep going when she believes the only thing worth caring
about is gone. Instead Of leaving her to fend for herself and her sanity, he wishes to put
his own story next to hers, and be one with her.
19. What spirit is being described in the final chapter? Consider both a literal and
****** Result for Image/Page 4 ******
symbolic (metaphorical) interpretation. How does this tie into the novel's second
epigraph? (323-324, epigraphs)
The spirit being described in the last paragraph is that Of Beloved. I think the
overall metaphor is not only about Beloved but about all the pain, history, and suffering
endured by black people. This novel highlighted the struggles Of African Americans, and
Beloved herself seemed to encompass not only the spirit Of the dead child, but the spirits
Of all people dating back to slaves in the Middle Passage.
Beloved Questions (Pg. 174-235)
What's the inferred connection between the four horsemen who come for
Sethe, and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (biblical allusion, do a
search online to learn more information)? (174-175, Revelations 6:1-8)
The arrival of the Four Horsemen in the Bible imply the arrival of the apocalypse. The
Four Horsemen in this part of the book are from Sweet Home, Sethe's former slave
plantation. Their arrival implies they will soon recapture slaves, authorized under the
Fugitive Slave Act. Connecting this with the Bible, the arrival of these four men imply
the end of Sethe's world - her own apocalypse. These men will take her children away
from her, and they will hurt her children. There is nothing worse than this to Sethe, and
so she turns to set her plan in action.
2. How does Schoolteacher internalize the actions Sethe has committed against
her children? (176)
Instead of actually feeling guilt and sorry for the action Sethe has committed, he sees it
as a liability. He is angry with his nephew for having tortured Sethe as badly as he did
because he feels as though she, and all slaves, are animals that he has the
responsibility of keeping from acting like so. He sees Sethe's actions as her going crazy
and thinks about what he has lost- a breeding machine and four slaves.
3. What "kind of confusion" had the uncle (Schoolteacher) warned his nephew
The "kind of confusion" that schoolteacher warned his nephew about was empathy for
the slaves, or in other terms, confusing them for human beings. In his eyes, they were
subhuman, property even, and so he did not want his nephew confusing them as
anything more, as he was showing signs of discomfort whenever Sethe was beat.
4. Analyze the flaws in the argument found at the bottom of p. 177, which
summarizes the ideology of those supporting slavery. ("All testimony to .„")
This argument is that white people are doing some kind of service to society by owning
slaves. They believe, through their own sinister actions, they are taking care of people
who are so animalistic, they cannot survive on their own. Clearly, this is morally and
absolutely wrong in all senses of the word. Claiming that owning other people is for
****** Result for Image/Page 2 ******
their own good is some twisted way of justifying the most evil thing in history.
5. What event is revealed in this section that shows how Denver might have
such a keen sensitivity towards Beloved?
It is revealed that Denver breastfed from her mother while she was covered in
Beloved's blood. Therefore, she ingested some of her blood, strengthening their bond
6. Why was Paul so dismissive about seeing Sethe's picture in the newspaper?
(182-183) What about his repeated denial of her expression? (182-184, 90)
Paul D was dismissive about seeing her face in the paper because he was unable to
believe that it was her. He was not able to imagine that she had committed a crime of
that gravity. He claimed, repeatedly, that those were not her lips. It could be simply
because he normally views her in a loving and tender way. To see her mouth in an evil
context threw him for a loop.
7. What is "The Look" and why was no warning given to 124? (184-185)
"The Look" is an expression held by white men often looking to oppress or capture
Blacks or former slaves. In this occasion, the four horsemen entering the town have
"The Look," as it is later revealed that they have come to recapture Sethe and her
children. The townspeople do not give warning to 124 because they are still upset after
the whoop. They are frustrated and jealous at the abundance provided to them at
Suggs' party, that they feel no need to warn 124 about the coming slave catchers.
8. What does Paul D. mean by calling Sethe's love "too thick?" (193-194)
Paul D meant that Sethe loves her children too much. Her ability to not see right and
wrong in a situation because she was clouded by love is dangerous. He does not seem
willing to try to understand why she did what she did. Paul simply dismisses it as
overbearing and unnecessary, not to mention wrong.
9. How does Sethe justify her decision to slay her children? (190-194)
Sethe wanted to kill her children when she had heard that slave captors were coming
for her, so that they would never have to experience the horrors of slavery as she had.
She did not want her children to live a life worse than death. She thought that they
****** Result for Image/Page 3 ******
would be safe in God's hands.
10. What's the Fugitive Bill? How does it explain, in part, the indifference of the
community around 124 to helping Sethe avoid her captors? Using the Internet
or an encyclopedia, learn more about the Fugitive Slave Act and the
Compromise of 1850. (201)
The fugitive bill made all citizens help in the capture of escaped slaves. In order to avoid
having Beloved put into slavery, Sethe resorted to killing her in order to avoid the
11. Why is Stamp Paid unwilling or unable to knock on Sethe's door? (202-203)
Since Stamp Paid helps many slaves, he always expects just one thing in return: for
their homes to be open to him. He likes to be welcomed and feel as though everyone's
family is his own. However, as he tries to knock on Sethe's doors, he hears these voices
and sound that is unwelcoming. He was bothered by this, and he also felt guilty for
telling Paul D about what Sethe had done.
12.1nterpret Suggs final choice, the contemplation of color, metaphorically. How
is this fitting? (208-209)
Suggs' final choice is metaphorically fitting because of the issues of race that were
prevalent at the time. As a black woman herself, to spend the rest of her life
contemplating the effect that issues of race had on her life was extremely appropriate,
especially considering the fact that they had just ripped away her daughter and
granddaughter away from her. Her choice is very much a reflection of a broken and
tired woman who simply wants to rest.
13. VMhy does Stamp Paid begin to identify with Baby Suggs and her tiredness?
Stamp Paid begins to identify with Baby Suggs and her tiredness as Baby Suggs
refused to go to the Clearing because she believed they had won but he refused to
acknowledge any such victory.
14.iNhy does Stamp Paid feel he owes no debts to anyone? (218)
Stamp Paid feels that he owes no debts to anyone because he had to sacrifice his own
****** Result for Image/Page 4 ******
wife when he was younger. She was given to a different, harsher slave owner. After the
world took the one thing he loved the most, his debts are completely paid for the rest of
15.How is Stamp Paid's former name significant? Hint: it's a biblical allusion.
Read a brief online or encyclopedia summary. (218, online)
Stamp Paid's original name is Joshua. In the bible, Joshua is who takes over and leads
the Israelites into the Promised Land after Moses' death. It is significant because in
some sense, Stamp Paid is the same, taking slaves to the "Promised Land" of their own
16.Why does Stamp Paid get riled up over hearing about Paul D.'s living
Stamp Paid gets angered when he hears about Paul D's living conditions. After leaving
Sethe, Paul D has been sleeping in the local church. No black men/women were willing
to offer him a home, showing this lack of community among them.
17.VMhat does the incident between Schoolteacher and Sixo say about justice?
Justice does not exist for a slave, or for any oppressed person in this time. "Justice" is
something that is interpreted by the white masters, meaning that is never truly fair to
the slaves. As stated in the novel: "Clever, but schoolteacher beat him anyway to show
him that definitions belonged to the definers-- not the defined." doc
