It is best to break this one into parts.

Volume of the rain to cover 100 square kilometers with 4.0 cm of rainfall. I am going to want this in Liters as pH = -log[H] and the concentration is in M= moles/L.

I have as a conversion factor 1000L per cubic meter.

4.0 cm = 4.0 x 10^-2 m
100 sq Km = 100 Km^2 x ...
