What does the taste indicate about the acid or base character of soaps?
Asked in pH Levels
How are they different in terms of pH level taste and how it dissolves in water?
acids are low pH and taste sour. bases are high in pH and taste bitter. both dissolve in water, some completely dissociating, while some do not. strong acids completely dissociate into ions, like sulphuric acid. acetic acid does not dissociate in water, and so is a weak acid. bases can be this way also.

Examples of acids in everyday life?
Acids and bases are encountered everyday in your life. Acids are characterized by a sour taste, and bases are bitter to the taste.

Flavor is added to medicines to offset the bitter taste. Bases have a pH level of 8 to 14.DetectorsOther natural detectors, besides taste, are red onions, red cabbage and grape juice. They change color to red in the presence of an acid, or blue if a substance is a base. Acid ProductsAcids react with metal and other materials. Acid in your stomach aids in the digestion of food.
