Do You Have Knowledge About Acids And Bases?

A mixture of dyes is called universal indicator. This is more useful than litmus as it can be used to measure how strong an acid or an alkali is using the pHscale. A pH of 7 is neutral (like for example water); a pH of 1 or 2 is a strong acid (for example sulfuric acid); weak acids like vinegar have a pH of 3 to 6. Weak alkalis (like soap) have pH values of 8 to 10 and a strong alkali like sodium hydroxide will have a pH of 13 or 14.
