The pH scale

The pH scale shows how acidic a substance is. Learn what pH means and how it is measured in this KS3 chemistry guide from BBC Bitesize.

Neutralisation reactions

Acids and alkalis react together in neutralisation reactions which produce salts and water. The salt name can be found from the name of the acid and alkali.

Reactions of metals with acids

Acids react with some metals to produce salts and hydrogen. The salt name can be found from the name of the acid and metal.
