pH measurement

pH

The pH value or pH is the negative of the base 10 logarithm of the activity of hydrogen ions H+. A pH electrode reports the pH and is sensitive to the activity of H+. In dilute solutions, the hydrogen ion activity is approximately equal to the hydrogen ion concentration. The symbol pH stems from the term potentia hydrogenii.
