Acids and Bases are all around us. Some everyday objects are easy to classify as either acids or bases, but others are not so easy. The grade 10 science class performed a chemistry lab to determine whether or not a variety of everyday substances are acids or bases. Using red cabbage juice as an indicator, students tested a few everyday substances to determine whether they were acids or bases, and used litmus pH indicators to determine the pH level of the substances.
