The correct answer is option 2. When the pH of a solution is changed from 4 to 3, the hydronium ions increases by a factor of 10. the pH is a scale used to measure the acidity or the alkalinity of an aqueous solution. Can be used to calculate the amount of hydronium ions in the solution. It is expressed as: pH = -log [H+].
