Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson  |  RAR

Test solutions to find whether they are acidic, basic or neutral. Arrange them in order of acidity. Measure the pH of solutions using universal indicators and a pH meter. Identify mystery liquids by measuring their pH. For example, identify the liquid in a car battery as an acid. Remember, all acids and bases including the dilute solutions used in this object, can be harmful and should be handled with care. This learning object is one in a series of six objects.

Students use a variety of chemical tests to determine the properties of solutions.
Students arrange solutions in order of acidity, based on their properties.
Students use the pH scale and universal indicators to distinguish acidic, basic and neutral solutions.
Students use the pH scale to measure degree of acidity.
Students use pH measurements to identify solutions.
Students have the option to learn more about the pH scale itself.
