No lemon juice has way more acid.

the acid level of lemon juice is less then that of coke or lemon juice. Its pH level is 3, while coke is 2.5 and lemon juice is 2.

Lemon juice is much more acidic than orange juice, and contains less natural sugars and less water. If you substitute fresh squeezed lemon juice for orange juice, the result will taste less sweet and much more sour. It's also a real pain to squeeze more than 1/2 c of lemon juice quickly. So, if the recipe calls for 1 c of orange juice, consider mixing up a weak batch of lemonade (equal parts lemon juice and sugar, plus four times more water than lemon juice.) Alternatively, substituting lemonade from concentrate or out of a container will work just fine. DO NOT substitute lemonade made from powdered drink mixes for orange juice.

Lemon juice has a pH less than 7 because lemon juice is slightly acidic. It contains citric acid, which is acidic, and all acids have a pH value below 7.

Salsa is less acid than lemon, so pH is higher.

More or less, Lemon Juice has a pH of around 2, stomach acids are around 1-2

Lemon juice, although it is slightly less acidic.

There is a lot of excess water in juice from lemons. The juice has some of its water removed by various methods, so that you can add more lemon flavor using less liquid. Similar processes are used with orange juice to thicken it before it is frozen to keep it fresh.

Yes cranberry juice does have less sugar than orange

Lemon juice from concentrate does contain vitamin C, although considerably less than fresh lemon juice.

First things first: anything that is pH 2.0 is not water, it's a moderately powerful acid. Lemon juice, for instance, is pH 2.0. Orange juice is pH 3. Next, we don't know how much of this acid you need to make less acidic. Certainly a glass of lemon juice is going to require less NaOH to bring its pH up than will a barrel of it.

lemon and orange are not more or less than each other.

Yes, but you may want to use a little less lemon juice than the recipe calls for.

Assuming the orange juice hasn't had additives added to it (e.g. it is freshly squeezed), there is NO phosphoric acid in orange juice, regardless of the quantity. Phosphoric acid is an INorganic (mineral) acid, made in bulk to add to Coke, rust removers, etc. The acidity in orange juice comes from CITRIC acid, a weak and natural organic acid, hence the term "citric fruit" for oranges, limes, lemons and the like. In lemons and limes citric acid can account for up to 8% of the (dry) weight; it's noticeably less in oranges, and can vary significantly depending upon the variety of the orange, as well as where it was grown (similarly with the proportion of vitamin C, ascorbic acid).

Yes, but I wouldn't worry about it burning you. The typical pH level of acid rain is about 5.0. That makes it less acidic than lemon juice with a pH of about 2.5.

Yes it is a peach has less juice then an orange

No the pH level of acid is too less. Everyone has HCl (hydrochloric acid) + some bacteria in their stomachs, so you need to collect enzymes from bacteria and a strong acid like Hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid.

Fresh lemon juice dissolves a egg shell just like vinegar. it (the egg shell) is less acidic than the lemon juice. so there fore it dissolves.

i would say about 1billion people have drunk orange juice in their lives if not less

Water as it is less acidic than either milk and orange juice.

Probably less orange juice...the thing is that the concentrate is thicker and has more flavor.

Soaps are alkali substances so by adding lemon juice (an acid substance) you will decrease the pH (because acid is low and alkaline is high) depening on the amount of lemon juice you add and the concentration of it would depend on your outcome, you may just make it slightly less alkali, you may neutralise it, or you may even acidify it if you were to add enough. I hope this was helpful :)

On the PH scale 7 is concidered neutral. Less tha 7 is acidity. Examples 0 is battery acid, strong hydrofluric acid, 2 - lemon juice, 3- vindgar. Black coffee and soft drinking water are in th PH 5 range. Tomato Juice and Acid rain are Ph4 range.
