The pH of a compound determine its acidity and basicity.

▪ pH stands for the negative logarithmic function of hydronium ion concentration
can be calculated using the following equation

pH = -log[H+]

Take note that:         [H+] = [H3O+]


We will do the following steps to solve this problem:

Step 1: Determine [H+]

Step 2: Calculate pH
