What would be the PH level that would burn things? around 7ish or 8ish?

p.s. you never know what will pop up...funny!

Hi Allyson,

When you say "burn things" do you mean like an acid burn? if so then neither a PH of 7, which is neutral like water or a PH of 8, which is basic is going to burn anything. You are going to have to look at substances that have a PH of less then 7; however, you must exercise caution. Talk to me about this tomorrow in class so I can get a better idea of what you have in mind.

Here is a link that may help.
