pH is the logarithm(base 10) of hydronium concentration, and higher acidity is higher Hydronium ion concentration(H+ ion, which is produced by acids). so higher H+ concentration yields a lower pH.

The pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. pH below 7 is acidic. Lower the pH, more acidic is it in nature. pH of 7 is neutral. Above 7 is basic in nature. Higher the pH, more basic is it in nature.

At what pH is a substance an acid or a base?

The pH is measure from 1 to 14. so, from 1 to 6.9 the substance is acidic. and from 7.01 to 14 the substance is basic. 7 is neutral. The closer the substance is to 7 it is either basic or acidic. As the number is lower the substance is more acidic for example: pH 2.9 is more acidic than pH 4.8

What does pH 6 means?

A PH of 6 would be equivalent to Milk, or Urine. The lower the Ph the more acidic it is. Water is a PH of 7 anything higher would be a base.

How does diluting an acidic or basic solution affect the pH of the solution?

It depends on the pH of the dilutant. if the dilution substance is base the acidic solution will become less acidic moving toward neutral pH, the more it is diluted the less acidic it will become. A base solution will remain base or about 7 pH

Higher the number on the pH scale the more acidic a solution?

The solution is basic.
