## Question:

Pure water is added to 25.0 mL of a 1.00 M HCl solution. The new solution has a volume of 2.00 L. What is the pH of the new solution?

## pH:

pH is a scale from 0 to 14, used in the chemistry to quantify how acidic or basic a water-based solution is. Acidic solutions will have a lower pH, while basic solutions will have a higher pH. To calculate pH, the concentration of hydrogen ions is used.

$$pH\: = \: -log\left [ H^{+} \right ]$$
