Can anyone tell me what a 1% (mass or volume) sulfuric acid solution is in moles? I want to find out the pH of a 1% (mass or volume) sulfuric acid solution?

Correct me if I'm wrong but...
I think you can assume you have a solution 1L in volume. If 1% of that solution is sulfuric acid, you can find the molar concentration. Sulfuric acid is a strong acid so assume 100% dissociation of H+. Then just use the formula pH = -log([H+]) to get the pH.

First dissociation step is strong, but the second is relatively weak. In this particular case about 76% is in the HSO4- form.
