#### Explanation:

It is pH.

The pH scale notionally goes from 1-14, although concentrated solutions of some strong acids can have a pH between 0 and 1. This scale, from 0-14 corresponds to concentrations of hydrogen ions from 10^0 (1) $m o l {L}^{-} 1$ to 10^-14 (0.00000000000001) $m o l {L}^{-} 1$.
