# What is the pH of a 0.0235 M HCl solution?

May 17, 2016

$p H = 1.63$

#### Explanation:

Concentration of HCl is $0.0235$ $M$

$\left[H C l\right] = 0.0235$ $m o l$/$L$

as $H C l$ is a strong acid, it will completely dissociate and produce ${H}^{+}$ ions.

[ ${H}^{+}$] = $0.0235$ $m o l$/$L$

pH = $- \log$ [ ${H}^{+}$]

$p H = - \log \left[0.0235\right]$

$p H = - \left(- 1.628\right)$

$p H = 1.63$
