Experiment 1: What Household Substances are Acidic or Basic? Table 1: pH values of common household substances
Substance|pH Guess|pH Paper|
Vinegar|2|~3|
Sodium bicarbonate solution|8|~7.5|
Milk|7|~6.5|
Orange Juice |5|~3.5|
Hand soap |8|~9|
Lemon juice |4|~2.5|
Questions
1.Compare and contrast acids and bases in terms of their H+ ion and OH- ion concentrations. Vinegar – Acidic with a low pH of around 3.
Sodium – Basic – with a higher pH scale around 7.5
Milk – I thought would be basic but it’s actually more acidic, around 6.5 Orange Juice – Acidic actually around 3.5
Hand soap – Basic around 9 pH
Lemon juice - most acidic thing I tested around 2.5
2.Name two acids and two bases you often use.
Acids: I drink Orange Juce everyday along with milk.
