Why does hydrogen chloride gas create an EXCESS of h+ ions?

What does it mean? Where r they coming form? We’re they bonded together?

hydrogen chloride is a covalent molecule with a covalent bond between the H and Cl atoms. It is very very soluble in water and dissolves in water to release hydrogen ions, the covalent bond present in the molecule breaks and forms hydrogen ions and chloride ions

HCl ----------------------- H+(aq) + Cl-(aq) you might see this written in gcse

a slightly better equation is

HCl + H2O --------------- H30+ + Cl- the H30+ ion is usually just written in books as H+
