In this investigation, students will learn the effects hydronium and hydroxide concentrations in solution, make connections to the acid/base chemistry behind the taste of sour and test to see if their tongue can be used as an accurate measure of pH. The true pH values of the candies will be determined using electronic pH sensors.
