Concept of pH

The dissociation of water, Kw, has such low value that expressing the concentrations of H⁺ and OH⁻ ions of a solution in terms of such low figures is not much convenient and meaningful. Such expressions necessarily have to involve negative power of the base 10. Sorensen proposed the use of a term known as pH , defined as:
pH = - log[H+] = log(1/[H+])
