pH means negative log of hydrogen ion concentration. Acids in solution provide hydrogen ions and bases furnish hydroxide ions so we refer to both of them.

Acid are proton donor and base is accepter, so on the base of proton concentration we can determine PH of solution.

Chemical reaction is totally based on exchange of ion so for that we can mention the acid base concentration.

pH+p OH = 14, ph is the negative reciprocal of the hydronium ion, but if the concentration of the hydroxide ion is known. Thus the p OH can be obtained and therefore the pH.
