Classify the so lut ion as acid or basic. 7 Chemistry 52 Chapter 15 THE pH SCALE · The acidity of a solut ion is commo nly measured on a pH scale. + pH = – log [H3O ] · The pH scale ranges fro m 0­14, where acidic solutio ns are less than 7 and basic solut ions are greater than 7. Acidic solutions pH < 7 + –7 [H3O ] > 1.0 x 10 Neutral solutions pH = 7 + –7 [H3O ] = 1.0 x 10 Basic solutions pH > 7 + –7 [H3O ] < 1.0 x 10 Exa...
