If HCl is a strong acid - meaning it dissociates 100% - then use \(\sf pH=-log[H_3O^+]\)

The pH is equivalent to the -log of the H+ concentration. pH = -log[H+] The P in-front of the H means take the -log of something. -log[2x10^-10] Remember pH is a relative term, just says the concentration of H+ ions in a solution, but doesn't give you the sense how strong an acid is, for that we use Ka values.

I put it in the calculator and got 9.6989 so I'm assuming that's the answer, thanks guys :)

Yes 9.69 is the answer! And remember the product of [H+][OH-] = 10^-14
