pH

 (pē′āch′)
n.
A measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution, numerically equal to 7 for neutral solutions, increasing with increasing alkalinity and decreasing with increasing acidity. The pH scale commonly in use ranges from 0 to 14.

pH

n
(Chemistry) potential of hydrogen; a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution equal to the common logarithm of the reciprocal of the concentration of hydrogen ions in moles per cubic decimetre of solution. Pure water has a pH of 7, acid solutions have a pH less than 7, and alkaline solutions a pH greater than 7

pH

(pē′āch′)

pH

A scale which gives a measure of the acidity of an aqueous solution. A neutral solution has a pH of 7; an acidic solution has a lower value, and an alkaline solution a higher value.
