Chemical Analysis of Common Household Substances

This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic of Quantitative Analysis.

In this post, we conduct a chemical analysis of a common household substance for its acidity or basicity, for example:

  • Soft drink
  • Wine
  • Juice
  • Medicine

 

Testing the pH of Common Household Substances

Testing household product for their pH levels, by conducting a chemical analysis using a universal indicator to test for its acidity or basicity.

 

Testing household products and liquids for their pH levels, by conducting a chemical analysis using litmus paper to test for its acidity or basicity.

 

Example of pH of Common Household Products

As pH is the measure of the of Hydrogen and Hydroxide concentrations, this video below covers some examples of the pH of 10 common household substances that can be subject to chemical analysis for its acidity or basicity.
