Chemistry Quizzes & Trivia

PH is a quantitative measure of the acidity which is measured with a pH meter for chemical solutions and widely used in chemistry, biology, and agronomy. S. P. L. Sørensen, a Danish biochemist, introduced the concept of pH, for measuring acidity and alkalinity. This quiz had been designed to test your knowledge about the pH level and effects of the solution. Read the questions carefully and answer. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!
