The pH of Common Substances

In chemistrypH is a numeric scale used to specify the acidity or basicity (alkalinity) of an aqueous solution.
More precisely it is the negative of the logarithm to base 10 of the activity of the hydrogen ion.
The term pH refers to a mathematical system developed by Danish chemist Soren Sorenson (1868–1939) around 1909.
Solutions with a pH less than 7 are acidic and solutions with a pH greater than 7 are basic.
Pure water is neutral, being neither an acid nor a base and its pH value is 7.
Human blood is slightly alkaline with pH 7.3-7.5
