Kitchen Pandemic, Ep. 2

By Jason Moeller

Scientists use the pH scale to measure how acidic or basic something is. This scale ranks things from 0 to 14. 0 to 7 are acids, with 0 being the strongest, and 7 to 14 are bases, with 14 being the strongest base. If a liquid has a pH of 7, it’s neutral – like water.

In this episode of The Kitchen Pandemic, ASC’s science educator Jason shows us how bases and acids can react to create a fizzy, bubbly explosion! You can follow along in your own kitchen (or outdoors) with baking soda, vinegar, dish soap and food coloring to make it even more fun!
