What are differences?

what are the top five differences between acids and alkalies ?
Question asked by: ramashyama

Asked on: 12 Jun 2010

Acids turn pH paper red colours whilst alkalis turn it dark blue. Same with litmus paper.

Acids have protons, H+, whilst alkalis have hydroxide, OH-.

Those are just a couple of differences between acids and alkalis... maybe others can come up with more :)
