I'll try not to bore you to death with the next information. For all liquids there is a scale from 14 to 0 and in the middle is water at a 7. Let's start with acids. Acids are a liquid that like to dissolve things such as metal. Acids are from a 7 to a 0 on the pH scale.
Yes I shoved Aladdin off of his flying rug but that was only to get home. Anyway when acids are combined with water, they produce a positive hydrogen ion or a H+ ion. They also have a sour taste to the mouth and because when are broken into ions they produce electricity they are electrolytes. Acids also corrode metal (make it turn brownish red and brittle). They also sting when when you touch them.
A whole new world?
Acids also react with bases to form salt and water and a neutralized reaction. Bases are liquids that are above the 7 in pH scale to 14. Furthermore the stronger base or acid it is, the further away it is from 7. Bases produce a OH- ion or a negative hydroxide ion. Most soaps and detergents are also bases.
Bases are also electrolytes just like acids, but they do not feel or taste the same as acids. Bases feel soapy and brittle along with tasting sour. In order to feed this unicorn, I have to grind up all of her food and then make it a base like slushy for her to eat. And do not get fooled by the unicorns delicacy, behind those skinny legs are strong base powered legs.
Now that I have finally arrived at Globnars, a place universally for its shark riding, you should all remember the lessons that you have learned and never forget how a Globnarian from Globnars taught you about chemistry.
