You have two solutions A and B. The pH of solution A is 6 and pH of solution B is 8. Which solution has more hydrogen ion concentration? Which of these is acidic and which one basic?
The pH value indicates the acidic and basic nature of a solution. The pH value of less than 7 indicates an acidic solution while greater than 7 indicates a basic solution. The pH value of a neutral solution is 7. Thus, in this case, the solution A with pH=6 is acidic and has more hydrogen ion concentration than the solution B (pH=8) which is basic.
