Full Answer

Vinegar with a 5 percent acetic acid content boils at approximately 213 degrees Fahrenheit. The boiling point increases as the amount of acetic acid is greater. Typical commercial vinegar has a density of 1.01 grams per milliliter. The pH of common vinegar is about 2.4, making it less acidic than gastric juices and lemon juice. Anything with a pH less than 7 is considered acidic whereas anything above 7 is basic.

  • Q:

    Which states of matter have no definite shape or volume?

    A:

    Gases and plasmas have neither definite shapes nor definite volumes. They both expand to fill available space, and can be reshaped by their containers. Liquids have definite volume, while solids have both definite shape and definite volume.

  • Q:

    Why is air invisible?

    A:

    Air is invisible because it is a gas, and gas particles generally allow light to pass through them because they are so spread apart. Gases expand to fill any container they are in, as they do not hold a shape; therefore, it is usually easy to see through them.

  • Q:

    What are examples of solids in gas solutions?

    A:

    Examples of solids in gas solutions include hydrogen in platinum and sulfur vapor in air. In chemistry and physics, there are three states of matter, which are solid, liquid and gas. From these states seven different types of solutions can form, including gas solutions, which involve the dissolving of gas particles into surrounding solid substances or the dissolving of solid particles into gas.
