Stomach acid (1.5) is 750 times for acidic than tomatoes (4.0).
Can you explain to me why it is 750 times?

stomach acid completly dissociates into H+ ions,but tomatores contain organic acids, which hardly dissociate at all.

maybe you want the math.
pH= log(H+)
or H+=10^ph
for stomach, H+=10^1.5
for tomatoes H= 10^4
making a ratio, ratio= 10^(1.5+4)=10^2.5
which is 750 
If I type 10^2.5 into my calculator, I get 316.2.
