The pH meter obviously had a more accurate test than the paper strips. Background: Testing pH is revealing a substance as acidic, basic, or neutral. An acid is a substance that releases Hydrogen ions (protons) into a solution. A base is a substance that absorbs Hydrogen ions in a solution. A pH scale ranges from 0-14. 1-6 pH numbers are ranges of acidic substances. Substances with a pH of 8-14 are bases. 7 is the pH of a neutral substance. Procedure: First pH paper strips were used. To determine the pH of a substance using the strips, you dip the strip into the solution and it changes color. Match the colors as close as possible just by looking at the scale and the solution and it changes color....
