**drwls**, Friday, December 14, 2007 at 12:48pmTry the easy case of pure water.

[H+]*[OH-] = 1.00*10^-14

[H+] = [OH-] since there are no other ions present

Solve for [H] and use the definition of pH

For other compounds, you will have to use additional dissociation or equilibrium constants to get the pH
