ChemistryChemistry: Principles and Reactions(a) Interpretation: The pH of the solution should be calculated, if the solution is acidic or basic should be determined. Concept introduction: The pH of a solution can be calculated by taking negative log of the concentration of the hydrogen ion in the solution. It is mathematically represented as follows: pH = − log [ H + ] Here, [ H + ] is concentration of hydrogen ions in the solution. The solution with a greater number of hydrogen ions will have less pH value and is more acidic as compared to the solution with more pH value. According to pH scale, the solution with pH value below 7 is an acidic solution and above 7 is a basic solution.Start your trial now! First week only $4.99!*arrow_forward*
