Does "calculated with an equation" include evaluating the formula and trying to determine its [approximate] pH? For example, could evaluating the formula H_{2}SO_{4} determine its approximate pH? Could comparing multiple formulas, such as HCl, HF and HBr, determine their relative pH to one another? Is there a general "philosophy" regarding their pH that can be understood from these formulas that could be applied to other R-Cl, R-F and R-Br formulas?

The first thing I would say is that there is no equation as such -- chemists do not think in terms of equations --

Here are the equations we "don't use"...sorry, you cannot view external links. To see them, please REGISTER or LOGIN

With the aid of super computers it is possible to compute the mass of particles such as Protons from first principles so I would have thought it would be possible to compute the ph value of compounds although I cannot see any good reason for doing it.
