Smart pH Sensor

This pH Sensor reads the pH value of any liguid and alerts by SMS with the liquid and its pH value

In chemistry, pH is a scale used to specify how acidic or basic a water-based solution is. Acidic solutions have a lower pH, while basic solutions have a higher pH. At room temperature, pure water is neither acidic nor basic and has a pH of 7.

pH measurement is used in a wide variety of applications: agriculture, wastewater treatment, industrial processes, environmental monitoring, and in research and development.

pH is a measure of the acidity or alkalinity of a solution…. The greater the concentration of H+ the more acidic the solution and the lower the pH.

To Calculate pH and [H+]: The equilibrium equation yields the following formula for pH : pH = -log 10 [H+] [H+] = 10-pH

In other words, pH is the negative log of the molar hydrogen ion concentration or the molar hydrogen ion concentration equals 10 to the power of the negative pH value.

A pH meter is a scientific instrument that measures the hydrogen-ion activity in water-based solutions, indicating its acidity or alkalinity expressed as pH.

The pH meter is used in many applications ranging from laboratory experimentation to quality control.

pH probes measure pH by measuring the voltage or potential difference of the solution in which it is dipped.

Hence, a pH probe measures the potential difference generated by the solution by measuring the difference in hydrogen ion concentration using the Nernst equation and displays the pH as output.”
