Question about Texas Instruments TI-86 Calculator

It is much more enlightning to tell us what you want to do rather than talk about something that does not exist. And one thing that does not mean anything is that ellusive INVERSE key that everyone and his dog is looking for.

The additive inverse of a number a is its opposite (-a). The key to use is the change key (-).

The multiplicative inverse of non-zero number a is its reciprocal 1/a

The inverse of the natural log (LN) function is the EXPONENTIAL function e^(x). On most calculators if one function is accessed diectly (the marking is on the key), its inverse is accessed by pressing [SHIF] (Casio, or [2nd] (TI) or [2ndF] (Sharp).

The inverse of the function raise 10 to a power [10^x] is [LOG]

Similarly, the inverse of the sine function SIN is the arcsine [sin^-1]. To access the latter, it you press [2nd][SIN]. The same is true for arcosine [2nd][COS], and arctangent [2nd][TAN]

The inverse of the square functions [x^2] is the square root function [2nd][x^2]

Inverse of x^3 is cubic root

This is just a quick overview.

The inverse of the log function is the power function.

For log in base 10 that inverse is 10 to a power of

More generally, let b be the base of the logarithm. If y=log_b (x) then x=b^y

For your case log=log_10, to calculate the inverse you perform 10^(-2)=0.01=1/100

On calculators the log in base 10 and its inverse share the same physical key. One is accessed directly, the other is the shifted key function.

The inverse of the common log function is the power function with base 10 (10^). It shares the same physical key as the log. You acees the function by pressing [2nd] [log]

What you call the antilog is also known as as the power function. More specifically, the inverse of a decimal log is the function 10 to a power, (10^x) It shares the same physical key as the log function. If the calculator has a key marked [LOG] you have to press the [2nd or SHIFT] key followed by the [LOG] key to activate the anti-log.

For natural log (logarithms in base e) the antilog is the exponential function (e^x). It shares the same physical key as the [LN] function.

For the inverse natural log, press 2nd LN. For the inverse common log, press 2nd LOG.

For example, to calculate the inverse natural log of 2, press 2nd LN 2 ENTER and you'll get about 7.389 .

There are very few instances where you have two press two keys AT THE SAME TIME, the most notable of them is when you want to force the calculator into the BOOT SCREEN. Most key combinations are key sequences, meaning you press a key and THEN press another.

This said, let us get back to your question.

When you apply a function on an expression, then apply the inverse of the function on the result you get the original expression back.

If f is a function and f^-1 its inverse, by definition f^-1[f(x)]=f[f^-1(x)] =x

As you can see you do not need a calculator to find the result.

Concerning the logarithmic functions

For the natural logarithms (logarithms in base e) labeled [ln], the inverse of the logarithm is the exponential function e^

ln[e^(x)] =e^[ln(x)] =x

For the common logarithms (logarithms in base 10), labeled [log], the inverse function of the log is the raising 10 to the power of. It is usually called the antilogarithm or antilog.

y= log(x) is equivalent to x=10^(y)

Try the following exemple

log(14) = 1.146128036

10^(1.146128036) =14

To access the 10^x function you press [2nd][LOG]

To access the exponential function you press [2nd][LN]

Hi,

Sorry to contradict you but there are many types of logarithms, the most important ones are

**[LOG]**, and the natural logarithms are labeled** [LN]**.

The inverse function of the natural log function is the exponential (e^(x)), and the inverse of the log in base ten function is the function ten to the power of. It is called (sometimes) the antilog

Ex:

Question What is the antilog of 3.5678?

Answer The antilog of 3.5678 is 10^(3.5678) = 3696.579068

Verification: log(3696.57908) =3.5678

Hope it helps.

Hello,

The wrong terminology is playing tricks on you.

Answer; antilog of 0.345 = 10^(0.345) =2.21309471

Look at the last two commands on the screen capture.

Hope it helps

Hello,

If you want to do correct mathematics you should strive to use the right words to express the concepts, and the right symbols too. While the logarithm function has an inverse function, it is never called an inverse log and it is never represented as log^-1. (I know you are going to protest and claim that the inverse of a sine function is represented on calculators by sin^-1. This a manufacturer shortcut, and we have no power to change that.) HP uses ASIN, ACOS, ATAN. These are still manufacturer shortcuts but they induce fewer errors.

Anyway, the logarithm functions do have inverse functions.

**1. Natural loogarithm (ln)**

The inverse of the natural log is the exponential.

**ln(e^(x))=e^(ln(x)) =x**

2. Common logarithm (logarithm in base 10)

The common logarithm has an inverse function, often called the antilogarithm or antilog.

**There is an equivalence. **

y=log(x) <--> x=10^(y)

From what I undesrtand of your exemple, you are looking for the antilog of the number -0.4/10 (or -0.04.)

-0.04= log(x), what is x?

You use the equivalence above to look for x as follows.

x=10^(-0.04) =0.9120108394.

Use the**change sign (-)** not the regular MINUS sign.

Take the log of the last result (still stored in Ans memory) and you get the original number.

Hope it helps.

The problem is simple. You're trying to get an [H+] concentration which is obviously going to have a value of some number times ten raised to a negative power. Therefore, you have to insert the negative value of the pH into the 10^(x). When you insert said negative number you will come out with the right answer.

i.e.

The pH of a sample of human blood was calculated to be 7.41. What is the [H+] concentration of the blood?

10^(-7.41) = [H+]

[H+] = 3.9 E-8

(the answer should only have two sig. figs because the pH has two digits after the decimal.
