What is the pH of a .013 M #HCl# solution?
The pH of this solution is 1.89.
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
pH = -log[
All we have to do is take the -log of the given concentration like so:
