How many grams of HCl need to be dissolved in 0.5L of water to prepare a solution of pH 1.5?

Does anybody know how to work this out?

Thanks :)

  • Chemistry - ,

    pH = -log(H^+)
    1.5 = -log(H^+) and
    (H^+) = about 0.032M but you do it more accurately.

    How many mols do you want? That's M x L = 0.032 x 0.5L = about 0.016 mols.
    mols = grams/molar mass. You know molar mass and mols, solve for grams.
