pH 3 = 1/1000 pH 6 = 1/1000000 The H+ concentration goes down by a factor of 1000

#### Explanation:

pH is the negative log of the Hydrogen ion concentration.

So the negative anti log of ${10}^{-} 3$ is 3

${10}^{-} 3 = \frac{1}{1000}$

The negative anti log of ${10}^{-} 6$ = 6

${10}^{-} 6 = \frac{1}{1000000}$

pH 6 is 1000 times weaker than pH 3
