pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution. It is numerically equal to 7 for neutral solutions, increasing with increasing alkalinity and decreasing with increasing acidity. The pH scale commonly in use ranges from 0 to 14
It is the symbol for the logarithm of the reciprocal of hydrogen ion concentration in gram atoms per liter.
Less than 7 represents acidity, 7 neutrality, and more than 7 alkalinity.
Bile neutralises the acid from the stomach to provide the alkaline conditions for enzymes to work effectively in the small intestine.
