Acidity

Acidity describes the level of acid in a substance.

The acidity of a solution can be characterized as a concentration of free hydrogen ions in it. Acid is stronger when the concentration of these ions is higher. Substances which release hydrogen ions when added to a solution are known as acids. The smaller the pH, the more acidic the solution is. Acids are corrosive.
