Definition of pH

  1. The acid and base scale of 0-14., it is the measure of hydrogen ions (H+) in water-based solution. A pH of 7 is neutral, less than 7 is acidic, greater than 7 is alkali (base). Pure water is 7, or skin is usually at around 5.5, (so slightly acidic). See also “Acid”, “Base”, and “Alkaline” above, and “pH and Primers” in the “Chemistry” section of this website.
