The chemical formula for the hydrochloric acid is HCl. The concentration of H+ in the solution is also equal to the concentration of the compound.                          concentration of H+ = 0.0075M The pH is calculated through the equation,                        pH = -log[H+] where [H+] is the concentration. Substituting the known values,                          pH = -log(0.0075M) = 2.12   Thus, the pH of the given hydrochloric acid is 2.1. The answer is the third choice.
