pH basically gives indication of how acidic it is.
Density is the ratio of is mass to its volume.

#### Explanation:

he pH scale ranges from $0$ to $14$, with $\left[0 , 7\right)$ being acidic and the lower the number the more acidic, that is, the higher is the degree of ionization in water to form a high concentration of hydrogen or oxonium ions in solution, and $\left(7 , 14\right]$ being basic or alkaline and the higher the number, the more basic. A pH of $7$ is neutral.

The density of water is ${\text{1 g/cm}}^{3}$ or ${\text{1000 kg/m}}^{3}$.

So a density of $1.0312$ (in ${\text{g/cm}}^{3}$ presume) is slightly more dense than water so would most likely sink in water if it is immiscible.

The relative density of a material (also called specific gravity) is a ratio of the density f the material to that of water at 4 degrees Celsius, which is the temp at which water has its maximum density.
