Acidity is described in terms of the pH value of a substance. The pH value ranges from 0 to 14 and is an indication of the acidity or basicity of an aqueous solution. A value of zero indicates highly acidic, a value of 7 indicates neutrality and a pH of 14 signifies highly basic or alkaline. Water has a pH value of 7.

Acidity in the stomach is the result of excess gastric acid production that may cause heartburn and other problems.
