Webster's 1913 Dictionary
  1. \Ac"id\, a. [L. acidus sour, fr. the root ak to be sharp:
    cf. F. acide. Cf. {Acute}.]
    1. Sour, sharp, or biting to the taste; tart; having the
       taste of vinegar: as, acid fruits or liquors. Also fig.:
             He was stern and his face as acid as ever. --A.
    2. Of or pertaining to an acid; as, acid reaction.
  2. \Ac"id\, n.
    1. A sour substance.
    2. (Chem.) 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}.
    Note: In certain cases, sulphur, selenium, or tellurium may
          take the place of oxygen, and the corresponding
          compounds are called respectively {sulphur acids} or
          {sulphacids}, {selenium acids}, or {tellurium acids}.
          When the hydrogen of an acid is replaced by a positive
          element or radical, a salt is formed, and hence acids
          are sometimes named as salts of hydrogen; as hydrogen
          nitrate for nitric acid, hydrogen sulphate for
          sulphuric acid, etc. In the old chemistry the name acid
          was applied to the oxides of the negative or
          nonmetallic elements, now sometimes called anhydrides.

Dream Dictionary
 Definition: A dream implying the handling or absorbtion of acid means that self destruction, rage and anger are boiling inside of you. You may need to calm down and take some distance, look at your problems in a different neutral angle.
Biology Dictionary
 Definition: A fundamental category of many compounds whose water-based solutions have a sour taste, turn blue litmus paper red, and can combine with metals to form salts. Acids have a pH lower than 7 (strong acids have a pH of less than 3). Specific types of acids include:
  1. Arrhenius acid: any chemical that increases the number of free hydrogen ions (H+) when they're added to a water-based solution. The more free hydrogens produced, the stronger the acid.
  2. Brönsted or Brönsted-Lowry acid: any chemical that acts as a proton donor in a chemical reaction.
  3. Lewis acid: any chemical that accepts two electrons to form a covalent bond during a chemical reaction.
