What is the pH of a 0.00001 molar HCl solution?
A. 1
B. 4
C. 5
D. 9
By definition pH is the negative log (logarithm) of the hydronium ion concentration. A 0.00001 molar solution has a H+ concentration of 10-5 M (move the decimal point 5 places to the right). The value of the negative exponent (-5) gives a pH of 5.

I wrote the MCAT about 8 years ago. During that time I created a whole lot of study material for myself and my friends. I want to now share it with the world. Good luck :)
