There is no given pH value for any particular acid. pH is a measure of the concentration of hydrogen ions in an aqueous solution. It depends on both how strong an acid is (how much it ionizes) and how much of it is dissolved in a given volume of water.

However, because hydrochloric acid is a strong acid it will normally produce a very low pH.

A 1M solution of it has a pH of 0. a 0.1 M solution has a pH of 1, a 0.01 M solution has a pH of 2 and so forth until a pH of 7.
