We're asked to determine the pH of a solution that is 1.07% HCl by mass.


Recall that the pH of a solution is given by:


pH=-log H+

Take note that:         [H+] = [H3O+]


Since HCl is a strong acid, it will completely dissociate into ions in solution as follows:


HCl(aq)   H+(aq) + Cl(aq)


This means that:  [HCl] = [H+]

**Brackets, [] indicate concentration in molarity


We first need to determine the molarity of HCl.  


Recall that molarity (M) is given by:         

       

Molarity = mol soluteL solution


Since we’re given the mass percent (% by mass) and the density of HCl solution, we can find the number of moles of HCl and the volume of the solution


Recall that mass percent is given by:


mass percent =mass solutemass solution×100
