Answer:

Well, work out the concentrations of the acid and its conjugate base, and apply the formula.

Explanation:

#pH# #=# #pK_a+log_10([[F^-]]/[[HF]])#

You can easily work out the concentrations of hydrogen fluoride and its conjugate base with the info given. You will have to find the #pK_a# of #HF#.
