Why does pure water have a natural pH?
Pure water has a natural Ph due to the rate of dissociation to H+ and OH- is equal to rate of association to form H2O. Pure water has no free ions.

Thanks for the feedback!
The pH of "pure" water at room temperature is 7.0 (Temperature will have an effect on pH of pure water. As the temperature increases so does the dissociation of hydrogen ion…s from H 2 0) The pH scale runs from roughly 0 to 14 (acids) 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 (neutral) 7 (bases) 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 pH is defined as the 'negative value of 10 log(molar concentration of [H + ] aq ), so in pure water [H + ] aq = 1,0 x 10 -7 = 0,000.000.1 mol/liter, pH = - 10 log(molar concentration of [H + ] aq ) = 10 log(1,0 x 10 -7 ) = 7.0 Absolutely 100% pure water will have a pH of exactly 7. However, if exposed to normal air it will dissolve carbon dioxide and form carbonic acid (which lowers the pH to around 6, give or take half a pH). This is a lot more complicated than it would appear. The nominal answer is 7. If you have extremely pure water, however, in contact with air, it will absorb enough CO2 to have a pH of about 6.5, and a resistivity of about 1 However, pH is a measure of the hydronium ion in water, and in extremely pure water, there is no ionization, which is why it will have resistivity about 15 million times that of regular distilled or deionized water. ______________________________________________________________ . At 25Â° C the pH of pure water is very close to 7. . Acids have a pH less than 7 while bases have a pH greater than 7. . Because it has a pH of 7, water is considered to be neutral. It is neither an acid nor a base, but is the reference point for acids and bases
It has the same number of hydroxide ions and hydronium ions.
I thought that it was 7. It is a neutral.
That is a mathematical consequence of the dissociation of water into H30+ and OH- ions, which is a concentration of approx 1 times 10 to the power of -7 of each ion in pure wa…ter.
The value of pure water is 7pH.
measures the acid and the alkaline of your body. The number 7 represents neutrality and lower numbers indicate increasing acidity and higher numbers increasing alkalinity
It is usually said to be 7.0. Strictly speaking, this is only true for a particular temperature (24oC). The pH at other temperatures is different, though it's important to u…nderstand that the water does not actually become acidic or alkaline as the temperature changes ... it's still neutral, but the pH of a neutral solution is different at different temperatures. Pure water is 7.0 But to the person above me when you heat water and leave it for cooling you need to minus two because all of the floating things e.g feces and icky things like that dissolve and the water is cleansed, but pure is straight form the springs, there is a different answer for everything not all things are the same.
Pure water has a neutral pH value of 7, anything above 7 is alkaline and anything below 7 is acidic.
The pH of pure water is 7
The water molecule is made up of hydrogen and oxygen, H2O. One of the hydrogen atoms is able to leave the water molecule, leaving behind OH- and H+. This happens, to a certain… degree, in pure water such that in every liter of water, 10-7 moles of water will dissociate into OH- and H+. This is described by the equilibrium constant of water deprotonation. pH is calculated as -log10[H+]. Because [H+] = 10-7, pH = 7. We consider this "neutral" because it is the pH that our bodies, and most of the rest of the biological organisms found in nature, use.
