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

1 Answer

Answer:

#pH = 1.63#

Explanation:

Concentration of HCl is #0.0235# #M#

#[HCl] = 0.0235# #mol#/# L#

as #HCl# is a strong acid, it will completely dissociate and produce #H^+# ions.

[ #H^+#] = #0.0235# #mol#/# L#

pH = #-log# [ #H^+#]

#pH = - log [0.0235]#

#pH = -(-1.628)#

#pH = 1.63#
