Congratulations! You are now an expert on the effect of pH!

I learned that the pH of things is important and that it can help determine the acidity of a liquid. I also
learned that all liquids have a ph and that there are indicators to help determine the ph of a liquid.
Cabbage juice is used as an indicator but is not as accurate as ph paper. It only gives you the difference in
color while Ph indicators give you a color which corresponds to a number. Not only will I use what I
learned in this activity for more games, but in real life to determine the acidity of various types of liquids.
