This video was made by me and my partner, Lexi. We were to make a slide show demonstrating the way different types of energy works. We decided to have a dog in our story undergo the effects of many different types of energy.
Acids and bases can affect our lives in positive and negative ways. These two types of solutions can do good or bad things to people and the environment.
Using products such as antiperspirants and deodorants involves the use of acids and bases. People need to learn about antiperspirants and deodorant so they understand their use of acids or bases. Antiperspirants help stop the production of sweat by sealing or clogging sweat glands while deodorants do not stop the production of sweat, but only stop the bacteria, which makes the odor less strong. By understanding what these certain products do, it becomes more clear how acids and bases affect us.
Did you ever wonder how a pickle goes from being a cucumber to a pickle? This process, again, includes the use of acid. Cucumbers are put into a salty water called "brine", and the brine's acidity preserves the cucumber and gives it a salty taste. The water's acidity overcomes the harmful bacteria in the cucumber that would rot it if it wasn't saved somehow. Even this every-day food depends on acid to be preserved, which shows what kind of part acids and bases take in our lives.
The quality of the environment can be changed by the way acids and bases take place in them. It is important to know the pH scale so you know how acidic or basic substances are. An important factor for living things is the acidity of the substance they are in. For example, some grasses need a soil with a certain pH to grow correctly. Also, the acidity of bodies of water need to be checked on so that the organisms living in the water don't die if the water is to acidic. Many things in nature that we are familiar with can be changed by acids and bases.
