How do I get the inverse log of -PH on my TI-30XA calculator?

Ad

PH is minus (log to base 10) of the hydrogen ion activity of an aqueous solution, or (log to base 10) of (1/hydrogen ion activity)

To get the inverse log, i.e the hydrogen ion activity corresponding to a specified pH, simply enter the pH value and press

2nd

LOG

1/x

The inverse of the decimal log is RAISING to power of 10. They share the same physical key.

To take the log of a number, enter the number then press the LOG button, then the =. To take the log of a negative number, enter the negative number using the +/- key just to the right of the decimal point. To calculate the negative of a log, calculate the log and then negate it using +/-. To calculate the antilog (inverse logarithm), press 2nd then LOG.

Bear in mind that LOG is the common (base-10) logarithm. For the natural (base-e) logarithm, use the LN key to its right.

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.

You compute the negative of a logarithm the same way you compute the negative of anything else. However, do you really mean the antilog (inverse logarithm)? Use 2ND [e^x] for the natural antilog, 2ND [10^x] for the common antilog.

For negative exponents, as well as negative anything, use the (-) key next to the decimal point. For your example, 1 EE (-) 6

Hello,

As you well know the pH is the negative of the log in base 10 of the H+/H3O+ ion concentration. If we use [H+] to represent that concentration, then**pH=-log[H+]**.

To obtain the [H+] you need to calculate the antilog. You write the definition in the form**log[H+] =-pH **and then calculate 10 to the power of each member. The equality remains valid as both members are treated similarly. Thus

10^( log[H+] ) = 10^(-pH)

Since raising 10 to a power is the inverse function of taking the log in base 10, 10^(log(x))=log(10^(x)) = x (they are inverse of one another), you are left with

**[H+]=10^(-pH)**

Your calculator has a function [10 to x] accessed by pressing the [2nd] function key. **To use it you must enter the negative value of the pH, press the ** [2nd] function key then the [10 to x], then the = key to get the result (concentration)

Exemple: let the pH=5.5, what is the H+ concentration?

With [(-)] being the change sign key, then

[H+]:**[ (-) ] 5.5 [2nd][10 to x] [=] **

The result is 0.000003162 or 3.16 x 10^(-6)

Hope it helps.

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.

I'm not specifically familiar with the TI83 or TI84 but I've used a lot of TI calculators in my time, so I'll give it a try. If your trying to find the antilog of a number in base 10 enter the number and hit the (10 to the X) button. If you're trying to find the antilog of a number in in base e (natural log), enter the number and hit the (e to the X) button.

I reccently had the same problem, but I have a Ti-84 Plus,and I am disgusted by how poorly this matter is covered by Texas Intruments. Esp. since the solution is rather simple.

The antilog key is [2nd] [log] or the 10^x. On your screen it should apear as 10^( and then you just input the value that you want to find the antilog of.

When used to solve pH problems remember to input the pH value as a negative number, since pH= -log[H+] then [H+]= antilog(-pH).

Hope that helped))))) ^^

You enter a pH value and change the sign to minus, then hit 2nd LOG which is 10^x. The x value is what you're looking for. To put the answer in scientific notation, press 2nd 5 to do so.

Example:

For a pH = 4.1

-4.1 2nd LOG will return 0.0000794

Hiting 2nd 5 will express it as 7.94 -5, giving you the [H+] concentration.

I have the same problem. I am trying to find the hydronium ion concentration and i keep getting a crazy number. The "enter the pH then 2nd then LOG then 1/x " thing doesn't work for me.

the same thing isn't working for me either-the enter the # then 2nd log then 1/x-not right answer...
