Now suppose you keep on adding water, with no limit on how much water you are adding.

We will reach a point where the HCl concentration is so low that if you take the negative log of the [H+] , you get a number greater than 7.

Doesn't this mean that we essentially have a "basic" HCl solution? But I thought that was impossible.

What's the catch here?

Thanks!
