Hello Forum :),

Please find attached my problem. The solutions is also there. BUT, I do not understand why my teacher does not simply assume pH=0. It seems as though we are using the standard hydrogen electrode (ie 1M H+ in solution!).

Question never says "standard" hydrogen electrode. It also never says 1M H+, it says 1 atm - which is most likely meant to be 1 atm of H2.
