An #HCl# solution has a concentration of #3.26 * 10^-2# #M#. What is the pH of this solution?
Since HCl is a strong acid, it completely dissociates into its respective ions when placed in water. In this case HCl ionizes to produce
As soon as we know that we're dealing with a strong acid, the pH can be obtained directly from the concentration of
All we have to do is take the -log of the given concentration like so:
