▪ A tool used with indicators that helpsidentify the strength of an acid or abase.
Acids and Bases are all around us Acids can be strong or weak having a pHvalue of 1 – 6, Strong acids can burn you; weak acidsdon’t▪ 1 (HCl/Hydrochloric Acid) being a very strong acid▪ 6 (Coffee) being a very weak acid
LikeAcids, Bases can be strong or weak havinga pH value ranges between 8 – 15 Strong bases can burn you; weak Bases wont A value of 8 – 9 is weak (Soaps, detergents) A value of 13 - 15 is strong ( Oven and Drain Cleaner Something that is “Neutral” has a pH of 7.(water and our body fluids are generallyneutral.)
When an acid and a base are combined aprocess called “Neutralization” occurs During neutralization the reactants (acid + base)combine to form two products.. Water H2O A compound called a “Salt”
