pH

Why do weaker acids have higher pH values than solutions of strong acids at the same concentrations?

Weaker acids partially ionize, releasing fewer hydrogen ions (H⁺) into the solution. This results in a lower concentration of H⁺ ions and a higher pH compared to solutions of strong acids, which fully ionize, releasing more H⁺ ions and leading to a lower pH.
