# What is the concentration of hydrogen ions in water?

A solution with a concentration of hydrogen ions higher than 10-7mol/L is acidic, and a solution with a lower concentration is alkaline (another way to say basic). Using the formula, pH=-log[H+], a pH of 7 is neutral, a pH less than 7 is acidic, and a pH greater than 7 is basic.

Moreover, what is the concentration of H+ and OH in pure water?

In pure water, at 25C, the [H3O+] and [OH-] ion concentrations are 1.0 x 10-7 M. The value of Kw at 25C is therefore 1.0 x 10-14. Although Kw is defined in terms of the dissociation of water, this equilibrium constant expression is equally valid for solutions of acids and bases dissolved in water.

What is the concentration of H+?

pH is a measure of the hydorgen ion concentration of a solution. Solutions with a high concentration of hydrogen ions have a low pH and solutions with a low concentrations of H+ ions have a high pH. This may seem like a confusion way to express these reationships, and it is, until you understand what pH stands for.

What is the concentration of hydronium ion in pure water at 25 degrees Celsius?

At 25°C in pure water, each concentration of hydrogen ions and hydroxide ions is only 1 x 10-7 M. It is important to note that the amounts of hydrogen and hydroxide ions produced from this reaction are equal. This is why pure water is often described as a neutral solution.
