- If $pH \gt 7$, the solution is basic; - If $pH \lt 7$, the solution is acidic; - If $pH = 7$, the solution is basic. a. Since $pH = 7.00 = 7$, the solution is neutral. b. Since $pH = 2.38 \lt 7$, the solution is acidic. c. Since $pH = 4.00 \lt 7$, the solution is acidic. d. Since $pH = 5.93 \lt 7$, the solution is acidic.
