Thanks for the query

Stomach and gastric lumen means the same thing. Normal ph of the stomach is between 1.5 to 3.5. It is highly acidic because of the gastric juices secreted in the stomach.

I hope I have answered your query, if you have no further queries please accept my answer

I wish you good health
