Ph Scale Lab

Satisfactory Essays

In this lab, the pH scale was used to determine which waters are most healthy to drink. The term ph means potential hydrogen. It is a measure of the hydrogen ion concentration when talking about a solution. If a solution has a high concentration of hydrogen ions, it will have a low pH and solutions with a low concentrations of H+ ions will result in a high pH. pH is a very well known water test to ensure that the water is healthy to drink. pH reveals the water’s acidity and it is a measurement of the potential activity of hydrogen ions. The pH scale is from 0 to 14. If one has a pH of 7.0 that is considered neutral. Solutions with a pH below 7.0, are considered acids. Solutions above 7.0 are considered basic. The purpose of this lab is to conduct
