We’re being asked to calculate the pH of 0.0157 M HBr
First, we need to identify whether the given acid is weak or strong.
Weak acids are weak electrolytes that don’t completely ionize but instead reach a state of equilibrium.
However, it’s easier to identify strong acids than familiarize yourself with all the weak acids (since the common strong acids have rules and are relatively fewer).
