1000/129 = 7.75
38.7% / 7.75 = 4.99% or 5%
Correct so far?

In the first post you have stated you HAVE 5% solution  why do you try to
dilute some other solution now? Just convert % to molarity, as described
here:

7.75. The math here:
12.1 M / 7.75 = 1.56 M, so the molarity of a 5% HCL solution is
approximately 1.56M.
Also correct??

No, such approach will work only if the density of all solutions is
identical  it is not.
Best,

Re: pH Calculation



Hello Ricahrd,
Thank you for your reply.
Allow me to try your idea:
Concentrated HCL is 38.7% mass percentage and 12.1 molar (I believe
that is accurate).
Therefore, using arithmetic, if I dilute it (v/v) by taking 129 ml and
bringing the final volume to 1000ml, I should have approximately a 5%
solution. The math:
1000/129 = 7.75
38.7% / 7.75 = 4.99% or 5%
Correct so far?
If so, then the molarity of the concentrated acid is also cut by the
7.75. The math here:
12.1 M / 7.75 = 1.56 M, so the molarity of a 5% HCL solution is
approximately 1.56M.
Also correct??
Assuming your answer to both my questions is YES, I've completed the
first part of your roadmap answer to my original question.
Please let me know if I'm on the correct path and, if so, I'll then
tackle the 2 and 3 portion of your answer.
Thank you again!

pH Calculation



Can someone show me how to calculate the pH of a 5% Hydrochloric acid
solution?
I need to do it with no equipment or test papers.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.
