Digital pH measurement. Digital pH meter being used to measure the pH of a chemical solution. The results are being displayed and recorded on a laptop computer. The tip of the probe is immersed in the liquid, which is weakly acidic (pH 5.8). The probe's tip contains electrodes that measure the electrical potential of the hydrogen ions. This is directly related to pH, which is a measure of the concentration of hydrogen ions. A pH reading below 7 is acidic, one above 7 is alkaline, while a pH of 7 is neutral.
