The term is used in chemistry, biology, and agronomy. PH translates the values of the concentration of the hydrogen ion into numbers between 0 and 14.
Danish biochemist S.P.L Sorensen used the measurement to represent the hydrogen ion concentration, expressed in equivalents per litre of an aqueous solution: pH = −log[H+]
The pH can be read with a less accurate litmus paper or with indicator dyes. However, it is usually measured with a pH meter that consists of a voltmeter attached to a pH-responsive electrode (usually mercury-mercurous chloride electrode) and a reference electrode (usually glass that are immersed in a solution. The voltmeter measures the potential difference between the glass and reference electrodes
In agriculture, the pH of the soil shows what crops will grow easily in the soil and what adjustments are needed to adapt it for growing other crops.
Acidic soils are often considered infertile as the solubility of aluminium and manganese also increase with acidity. However, conifers and members of the family Ericaceae, such as blueberries, prefer acidic soils. Acidic soil can be neutralized by treating it with lime.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
