    -log[H+]=pH, so when the concentration of the hydrogen ion goes up, pH goes down and vice versa; 3.8 is a higher concentration of the ion than 6.2.

    pH is defined as negative log of H+ concentration to the base 10 in gram ion per liter pH=-log[H+] in a pH scale if concentration of H+ and OH- is equal the pH will be 7 as in the case of neutral H2O...now as concentration of H+increases pH decreases and inversely as concentration oh OH- increases the pH increases hence we can conclude from above discription that pH 3.8 will have more H+ concentration...|dw:1327644283271:dw|
