Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, So basic Idea of pH is that anything having a pH < 7 is acidic and > 7 is basic. Cool yet?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1pH is a basically a logarithmic scale which measures the concentration of H+ ions. It goes from 0 to 14 anything having a pH value of smaller then 7 will be acidic and greater than 7 will be basic. Substances having a pH equal to 7 will be neutral.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Great !!! Before we can touch our question you need to know one more thing. You know that to declare something acidic or basic you need to know its position on pH scale but how will you determine its position????? :O We use the following formula \(\sf pH = log(H^+ ion~concentration)\) Cool cool?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's it now we can proceed to our question !! In the question, concentration of \(\sf H^+\) is given \(\sf 10^{12}\) moles/L. We substitute this value in the above formula and calculate the pH \(\sf pH=log(10^{12}) = ?\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Once you calculate the pH, you can determine whether the solution is acidic or basic.
