Answer:

#pH=3#

Explanation:

By the definition of #pH#, it is the potential of hydrogen. It is given by the equation,

#pH=-log[H^+]#

That means, per #1# unit of lower #pH#, there will be #10# times more hydrogen ions #(H^+)# than the level above.

#3<7#

#:. pH = 3 > pH = 7# in terms of #(H^+)# ions.
