  • Answer: Yes, soda pop has a small amount of acidity.
  • Answer: Alcohols can easily oxidise to form carboxylic acids when exposed to the air (this is why the dregs of a bottle can be sour). Alcohol acidity is a way of measuring how much of the alcohol content has been converted this way.
  • Answer: Lime water with butter having butyric acid cures acidity
  • Answer: To digest food properly the liquid in the stomach must be acidic. But too much acidity leads to indigestion. One takes antacids ,which usually contains baking soda or magnesium hydroxide to neutralize the excess acid.
  • Answer: Orange juice has a pH of about 2.8.

    *Human gastric juice in our stomach has a pH of about 1.4. For comparison, human gastric juice has an H+ concentration of more than ten times that of orange juice.

  • Answer: Bacterial infection is the most common cause of duodenal ulcers, orreflux of gastric acid into the esophagus, which connects the mouthand the stomach.
  • Answer: Stomach acid is Hydrochloric acid. Antacid remedies arealkaline-based. Adding an alkaline to an acid reduces the strengthof the acid. In the case of indigestion - this reduces thediscomfort caused by excess acid production.

  • Answer: Add potash or a similar product available from pool shops.
  • Answer: Usually you would add muriatic acid to adjust the pools acid level.
  • Answer: analysis of fruit and vegetable juices for their acidity
  • Answer: This is fairly true.

    In our bodies we have receptors constantly monitoring the level of the CO2 in our blood. When the level of CO2 rises, these receptors (called chemo-receptors) will register this, and signal the breathing center to increase rate of breathing.

    What does this have to do with acidity you ask?

    In our blood we have buffer systems, which are designed to minimize the change in pH done our blood by different waste products of metabolism. The main buffersystem is called the bicarbonate buffersystem:

    CO2 + H2O <----> H2CO3 (carbonic acid) <---> H+ + CO3- (unbalanced)
    The reaction is catalyzed by the enzyme carbonic anhydrase.

    From the above equation you can deduct two things:

    a) If you ADD CO2 to the equation, more H+ will eventually be produced and this will diminish the pH of the blood (pH = -log([H+])).

    b) If you REMOVE CO2 from the equation, the reverse happens and less H+ is produced. This will raise the pH of the blood.

    This is why the chemoreceptors register blood CO2 levels. Actually, what they are measuring is the pH of the blood. If they register too low a pH, they can signal the ventilation center in the brain to increase breathing, and thereby remove more CO2 from the body, and raise the pH.

    The body uses this to combat conditions in which the pH of the body is too low. An example of this could be the state of diabetic ketoacidosis. This condition, not uncommon amongst diabetics, is characterized by increased acid production and thereby a lower blood pH.

    The body responds to this threat by increasing ventilation (increased breathing) thereby removing CO2 from the blood and raising the pH. By these means the condition is compensated.

    Normal blood pH ranges are: 7,35 - 7,45.
