cleaning products are alkali, that's why leave your hands slippery when you have touched it.
im not very sure but as it reacts with(neutralises) Lime(alkaline), im guessing they're mostly acidic. Correct me if im wrong. thanks.
They may be alkaline, but some online sources claim that pine nuts are acid-forming during digestion.
Alkaline substances have a pH greater than 7. Cleaning products are alkaline, soap, detergent... Acidic substances have a pH less than 7. Oranges, lemons, fruit, yoghurt, vinegar, anything with the word acid attached to it are acidic.
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)
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.

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.
acid + alkaline ----> salt + water. e.g. sulphuric acid + sodium hydroxide ----> sodium sulphate + water
Vinegar is an acid. With a Ph of 4. If the pH is below 7, it is an acid, if it is above 7 it is an alkaline, if the pH is 7, then it is neutral. I hope that helps!
The pH of Yogurt is about 4.0. This number shows that the yogurt is indeed acidic.
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)
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 oxidati…on 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). ( Full Answer )
shampoo is alkaline, because it eats away the grease in your hair, shampoo is very alkaline so therfore it is very corrosive
Soils with alkaline and neutral pHs have more calcium present. Water drains quickly through sandy soils. So sandy soils quickly lose their calcium content, because of this leaching. And so they tend towards the acidic ranges of soil pH.
soap is alkaline in nature because the main compound is NaOH which is a base.
It is basic as ammonia (NH 3 ) accepts an proton to form NH 4 + Acids give away protons and bases give hydroxyl ions
Pure water is neither acid nor alkaline: it is (essentially) neutral pH= 7.0 (at 25 o C). Municipal tap water is normally very slightly lakaline (pH=8), sometimes 'natural source' water are slightly acidic (pH=5 to 6) depending on well, river, lake or ground conditions. When you add acid, p…H is lowered (7.0 in alkaline range. ( Full Answer )
A Lemon is acidic, in it's natural form. Lemon juice is about 5% Citric Acid, hence the flavour.
Epsom salt is a salt. It is a byproduct of neutralization, where an acid and a alkaline is put together and neutralized. The byproduct of this chemical reaction is a salt. Therefore it should normally have a pH of 0, making it neither an acid nor an alkaline
its alkaline, alot of people tend to get mixed up with this due to the reactivity. Its an base(alkaline) and a alkali since it desolves in water all hydroxides are the same and end in OH mj
It is acidic. Answer . Right. Milk is an acid, although it is barely above the neutral mark. Most people confuse milk as a base for some reason but it's really considered an acid.
No. The clue is in the name. Citric acid is a weak triprotic carboxylic acid, i.e. it has three protons available for dissociation. Because it is an acid, in the same way as vinegar it is readily neutralised by alkaline substances such as sodium bicarbonate.
The reaction between an acid and an alkali is called neutralization. Essentially the hydronium ion of the acid (H+) reacts with the hydroxyl ion of the base (OH-) to form water, a neutral compound.
Unpolluted rain should be neutral but many pollutants are acidic (oxides, dioxides and trioxides of Sulphur and Nitrogen in particular). These can become dissolved in rainwater it cause it to become acidic.
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.. ( Full Answer )
No, an acid is an acid and an alkaline is alkaline. They are essentially opposites and will react with one another. The product depends on the specific reactants
That depends where it comes from. Take a sample for test for your own safety. That depends where it comes from. Take a sample for test for your own safety.
Acidic means that a substance has a low PH value, and alkaline means that it is basic, or has a high PH.
It is generally somewhat acidic but it depends on the geology and climate. In deserts, you often get poor drainage and most of the water comes from below. That tends to make it alkaline. Where there is much organic mater and good drainage and plentiful rain, it tends to be somewhat acidic..
The answer is chiles are alkalinic for your body, but the burn, heat or spicy quality is caused by a fatty acid known as capsaicin. And, that is acidic.
Humic acid pH 4-6 ,week acidic ,lower activity .when mixed with KOH or NaOH,after reaction they will become Humic acid salt that is to say humte, is soluble in water.more details at the related link.
The Commonly used cocoa is acid forming since it is processed and has dry milk with it. Milk is high in protein and phosphorus which is acid forming. Unsweetened Cocoa is Alkalizing because it is high in Magnesium and Potassium.
HCL is a gas formed by a hydrogen atom and a chlorine atom. In contact with humidity in the air, it turns into a Hydrochloric acid. Because of its shared formula with the hydrochloric acid, there are many misleading explanations stating that HCL is the hydrochloric acid.(but it is actually a compoun…d gas) Anyways , returning to your question, it is acidic as the fumes causes the blue litmus paper to turn red. ( Full Answer )
HCl is usually regarded as an acid, because an aqueous solution of it is a strong acid according to any common definition of acid.
If you mean ethanoic acid then yes. Ethanol is organic but it is generally not considered an acid.
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.
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. A…spartates, fumarates, and succinate mineral compounds also have an alkalizing effect. ( Full Answer )
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.
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^ ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )
It can be either. Two examples would be: Caustic soda (Sodium Hydroxide), which is very alkaline. Caustic potash (Potassium Hydroxide), which is very acidic.
most probably is acid...as we know peat soil contents high of organic materials....organic materials consist of Carbon Hydrogen Oxygen...most of these atom can be found in organic compound known as organic acid for example CH3OOCH3
None. Calcium is an element. Acids contain H+ ions, eg, sodium chloride. (NaCl2) Alkalis contain OH- ions, eg, sodium hydroxide. (NaOH)
Ironically, calamansi is alkaline. It has to be taken pure. If you mix it with water or sugar, it becomes acidic.
Coffee is acidic and decaf coffee is even more so. However, you can soften the blow a bit by adding a half teaspoon of baking soda....and it tastes ok!
The are alkaline, since they are used to diffuse the acid that's inside ur stomach
Fruit salt is primaily a combination of citric acid and baking soda, and is often used as an antacid. It's alkaline
Most of the perfumes are neutral solutions. Although there are particular perfumes which are either acidic or basic with respect to their active ingredients.
There are acidic batteries and alkaline batteries. For example, car batteries are acidic and pen torch batteries are alkaline.
acidity or alkalinity is a measure of the relative amount of H+ andOH- ions dissolved in a solution
