### pH

Does anyone know how to solve pH?

### Re: pH

The pH of a number is the negative log of that number. For example, pH(10^-1)=-log(10^-1)=1

### Re: pH

The pH of a solution is the -log of the hydronium ion concentration: pH = -log[H3O+]

### Re: pH

Also if pOH is given and it asks for you to give the pH, know that pKw= pH + pOH. This is derived from the equation where Kw= [H+][OH-].

### Re: pH

To find pH simply take the -log{H30+}.

### Re: pH

and then if you're given pH and you need to find the H30+ concentration you just do the antilog: 10^(-pH)
