A solution that has hydrogen ion concentration higher than 10^-7 mol/L is acidic. A solution that has hydrogen ion concentration lower than this is alkaline.  pH is a measure of ion concentration. Solution with pH less than 7 are acidic, while those with pH higher than 7 are basic or alkaline. Solution with pH 7 are neutral solutions. In our case , the hydrogen ion concentration is 1x10^-9 M, which is lower than 10^-7, so the solution is alkaline and its pH value is higher than 7.  The pH can be calculated with the formula: pH=-log(H+)=-log(10^-9)=9
