Examining the effect of acidity and alkalinity on bacteria growth inhibitionFeatured science projectScience project video

Observation

 

Acidic and alkaline solutions of a higher concentration were obs

It was also observed that the acidic solution led to a larger inhibition zone compared to the alkali solution of the same concentration.

Solution used Diameter of the inhibition zone (mm)
  5% 10% 15% 20%
Alkali (Sodium Hydroxide) 10 11 18 23
Acid (Hydrochloric acid) 12 15 21 29

Use the graph below to plot the experimental data recorded in the table above.
