pH of Amphoteric Compounds

What would be the pH of amphoteric compounds since they demonstrate both acidic and basic character?

pH value is determined by the concentration of Hydrogen. Different substances, like strong acids, weak acids, and amphoteric will all have their own general dissociation value, Ka, but it is how much present that will determine pH. The behavior of an amphoteric substance which determines if it acts more as a base or more as an acid is also determined by the environment it is in.
