Definitions for "ACID "
Sour, sharp, or biting to the taste; tart; having the taste of vinegar: as, acid fruits or liquors. Also fig.: Sour-tempered.
One of a class of compounds, generally but not always distinguished by their sour taste, solubility in water, and reddening of vegetable blue or violet colors. They are also characterized by the power of destroying the distinctive properties of alkalies or bases, combining with them to form salts, at the same time losing their own peculiar properties. They all contain hydrogen, united with a more negative element or radical, either alone, or more generally with oxygen, and take their names from this negative element or radical. Those which contain no oxygen are sometimes called hydracids in distinction from the others which are called oxygen acids or oxacids.
A sour chemical substance that releases hydrogen ions with the ability to dissolve metals, neutralize alkaline materials and to combine with bases to form salts. Acid is used to lower (decrease) pH and total alkalinity of swimming pool and spa water. Examples are muriatic acid (hydrochloric) and dry acid (sodium bisulfate). All liquids with a pH lower than 7.0 are acidic or acid.
A term used to describe a cheese with a lightly sourish flavour.
A natural component of the grape, primarily tartaric acid. Acid adds flavor and crispness, and its tartness provides "backbone" to the wine.
A natural compound found in all grapes that adds to the flavour and crispness of a wine while helping to preserve it. The four most prominant acids found in wines are tartaric, malic, lactic and citric acid.
A term used to describe the recovery/restart properties of a transaction; Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability.
Acronym for the properties--atomicity, consistency, isolation, and durability--maintained when the operations within a transaction are applied to a database.
Despite a commonly held belief among the uninitiated, this is not the substance of choice of data modelers. A mnemonic for the four important properties of database transactions: tomicity, onsistency, solation and urability. The source of this acronym is the 1983-12 paper "Principles of Transaction-Oriented Database Recovery," by Theo Härder and Andreas Reuter, published in ACM Comp. Surv. 15, No. 4.
Crystalline rocks (igneous and metamorphic) can be classified on their chemical composition, as reflected in the amount of SiO2 present (so-called normative composition). Rocks with high SiO2 contents (with free silica - the mineral quartz) are termed "acid". They will generally also contain lots of feldspar with relatively few dark minerals (e.g. biotite, amphiboles). Examples include granite.
A descriptive term applied to igneous rocks with more than 60% silica (SiO2).
Igneous rocks relatively rich in silica, such as granite and the lava rhyolite.
Acid-free Paper Acrylic Painting
acid attacks cellulose fibres by shortening them, causing paper to discolour, become brittle and eventually turn to dust. Exposure to light and damp accelerate this process. Acid is generated by the lignin (tree sap) in paper. It can also be introduced by chemicals used in paper manufacture, framing materials and atmospheric pollution.
Acids weaken the cellulose in paper, which leads to its break down, causing discoloration and disintegration.
