Is cola acidic or alkaline?

Acidic. Cola (and all other carbonated drinks) contains carbonic acid formed as carbon dioxide is dissolved in the water solution. H20 + CO2 --> H2CO3 (carbonic acid)

Is yogurt alkaline or acidic?

PLAIN yogurt with no fruit, sugar, or sweetener added has a pH of around 4. So it is a little acidic BUT the way it processes in your body, because of the live cultures, it changes pH during digestion (ONLY PLAIN YOGURT) - kind of like lemon or RAW apple cider vinegar. I always add fresh lemon juice to anything questionable - water, white/green tea, yogurt. Lemon is a fruit you can combine with all other foods. Don't forget you should eat alkaline fruit by itself, with nothing else (other than other fruits) b/c acidity increases if you mix fruit w/ carbs, fats, and even alkaline vegetables during digestion.

Is a bee sting acid or alkaline?

A bee sting is acid, a wasp sting is alkaline, that's why you should put bicarbonate of soda on a bee sting and vinegar or lemon juice on a wasp's if you want to neutralize it and take away the pain.

alkaline because in NaOH, Na is plus and OH is minus. when hydrogen is plus it is an acid when it is negative it is a base (alkaline)

Is wine acidic or alkaline?

Wine is acidic. The main contributor to its acidity is acetic acid. Ethanol (aka ethyl alcohol, grain alcohol, drinking alcohol) breaks down (oxidizes) into acetaldehyde and then further into acetic acid (aka vinegar). The acetic acid is always present in small concentrations and over time oxidation occurs and the concentration increases. The rate increases substantially if the wine is exposed to large amounts of oxygen (open a bottle and leave it out).

What is acidity and alkalinity?

Acidity and alkalinity are terms used to describe the concentration of hydrogen ion (H + ) in a solution. It is measured with the pH scale, a set of values usually given as 1 to 14 where 1 is very acidic, 7 in neutral, and 14 is very alkaline. The numbers are the negative log of the H + ion's mole concentration. pH is measured with a pH meter or various indicator solutions which change colour at different pH levels..

What are the properties of ethanol and ethanoic acid?

Objective: To study the following properties of acetic acid (ethanoic acid): . Odour . Solubility in water . Effect on litmus . Reaction with sodium bicarbonate Theory: What you know about acetic acid? Acetic acid is an organic acid with the formula CH 3 -COOH. Its functional group is carboxylic acid group. Acetic acid is a monocarboxylic acid because it contains only one â€"COOH group. It has a sour taste and pungent smell. It is the main component of vinegar. Vinegar is typically 3-7% solution of acetic acid in water. Vinegar is mainly used as a preservative in food and in the pickling of vegetables. Water free acetic acid is known as glacial acetic acid. What are the properties of acetic acid? . Acidic character . When dissolved in water, acetic acid undergoes dissociation to form hydrogen (H + ) ion. Because of the release of a proton, acetic acid has an acidic character. It turns blue litmus paper red, indicating that it is acidic in nature. However, it is a weak acid because it does not dissociate completely in aqueous solution. Acetic acid reacts with sodium bicarbonate to produce carbon dioxide. On passing CO 2 gas through lime water, the lime water turns milky. The milky appearance of lime water is due to the formation of solid calcium carbonate (CaCO 3 ). . Reaction with sodium bicarbonate Common uses of acetic acid: . Acetic acid is used as coagulant in the manufacture of rubber. . It is used in the manufacture of various dye stuffs and perfumes. . It is used in the manufacture of rayon fibre. . It is used as a solvent. Learning outcomes: . Students understand the chemical properties of acetic acid after this experiment. . Students acquire skills to perform & visualize the reaction of acetic acid with the following. . Water . Litmus paper . Sodium bicarbonate . Students will be able to properly use glassware like thistle funnel, delivery tubes, etc., in the real lab. . Based on acquired skills, the student will be able to analyze a given sample & recognize it as acetic acid.

How you convert acetic acid into ethanol?

Ethanol is produced from acetic acid by esterifying the acetic acid with an olefin having at least 4 carbon atoms, hydrogenating the ester obtained into ethanol and a higher alcohol having at least 4 carbon atoms, removing the ethanol, dehydrating the higher alcohol back to the original olefin and recycling the olefin to esterify the acetic acid.

What is acid or alkaline mean?

Acidic means that a substance has a low PH value, and alkaline means that it is basic, or has a high PH.

Is loam acidic or alkaline?

Is uric acid alkaline or acidic?

Acidic. It forms a tautomer in which the oxygen atoms bond with the H atoms of the NH in the ring. The hydrogen atoms can then be easily donated. Under the Bronsted-Lowry theory of acids and bases, a hydrogen donor is classified as an acid.

Is calcium citrate alkaline or acidic?

If you take mineral supplements, opt for the citrate form, such as calcium citrate and magnesium citrate. The body can convert citrate to bicarbonate, which promotes an alkaline pH. In one study, potassium citrate supplements protected against calcium losses, even when people ate a high-salt diet. Aspartates, fumarates, and succinate mineral compounds also have an alkalizing effect.

Is bubble bath an alkaline or acid?

It can be either depending on what ingredients are used. Generally, a bubble bath should have a pH of 7 or slightly lower, meaning neutral or slightly acidic which is gentler on the skin and hair as well as better for cleaning (i.e. dissolving) purposes.

Is a base an acid or alkaline?

Alkaline. A base is very different from an acid: in fact, it's the very opposite. on the pH scale, a base has a pH of anywhere between 8 and 14, while an acid has a pH of less than 7. 7 is water, which is neutral. there's a lot more complicated things to it, but I think I've answered the question. ^w^

What is used to measure acidity or alkalinity?

There are many popular indicators in chemistry for measuring the pH (or pOH) level of a substance, and they are referred to collectively as pH tests. A litmus test is among the more popular of the tests and is usually used in the form of a strip of paper which functions as a dipstick. The paper (purple when neutral, though sometimes pale pink or pale blue to start with in commercial products) will turn red for a pH below 4.5 (acidic) and blue above 8.3 (basic). However, this leaves the alkaline range ambiguous, so it is not ideal for testing for the alkalinity of a substance. Phenolphthalein is most commonly used in acid/base titrations to find the point of alkalinity and is very accurate. It is in liquid form and can be added to the chemical to be tested. On its own or in an acid phenolphthalein is completely clear, but in a basic solution a single drop can turn even a beaker-full a bright magenta. A very pale "rosy pink" will occur at equilibrium and is generally used in titrations to indicate alkalinity.

What happen when ethanol is heated with alkaline kmno4 solution?

When ethanol is added to alkaline KMno4 solution, the ethanol gets oxidised to ethanoic acid due to nascent oxygen. KMno4 is an oxidising agent. thus when we first add alkaline Kmno4 to ethanol, the pink colour of the Kmno4 vanishes, as it is being used up for the oxidation process. however. when all of the ethanol has been oxidised into ethanoic acid, and we keep adding Kmno4, the colour returns, as there is no more ethanol left to oxidise.
