pH is the amount of hydrogen ions in an aqueous solution. pKa is the acid dissociation constant which tells you at what degree the acid will dissociate. It can also tell which side the equilibrium will favor. Basically, pKa tell you what the pH needs to be in order for the acid to donate an electron.
