Why does my Bottle of pH Buffer State a Temperature on the Label?

Changes in temperature affect a pH reading. This is why you will usually see the temperature printed on the side of the bottle of pH buffer solutions. The buffer will be closest to its stated pH at that temperature (usually 20oC or 25oC) When calibrating a pH meter with automatic buffer recognition, it is recommended to use the correct buffer. So please check the manufacture's instructions ...

Can I use pH test strips to measure the pH of edible oils?

pH in simple terms, is a measure of how acidic or alkaline something is. It is measured on a logarithmic scale of 0-14, where 0-6 is considered acid, 7 is neutral and 8-14 is alkaline. Using test strips and papers is the simplest way to quickly measure pH. Although basic, they are ideal for many applications and are also suitable to use as an indication prior to more accurate pH testing (i.e us...
