How do I use antilog for determining ph values in chemistry on my ti-30xa calculator?

Ad

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.

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

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

[H+]:

pH=-log[c]

concentration=10^(-pH)=10^(-4.32)=4.786*10^(-5) mol/L

concentration=10^(-pH)=10^(-4.32)=4.786*10^(-5) mol/L

[H+]=10^(-8.19). The - sign is the change sign key. The result is 1.2589x10^(-9)

The antilog functions are the 2nd functions of the log functions on the top row of the keyboard.

To calculate the natural antilog of 3.1, press 3 . 1 2nd LN

To calculate the common antilog of 3.1, press 3 . 1 2nd LOG

To calculate the natural antilog of 3.1, press 3 . 1 2nd LN

To calculate the common antilog of 3.1, press 3 . 1 2nd LOG

Do you mean the antilog? For the common antilog, use the shifted function of the LOG key (marked 10^x). For the natural antilog, use the shifted function of the LN key (marked e^x).

For example, to calculate the common antilog of 0.5, press . 5 SHIFT [10^x] = and get about 3.16. To calculate the natural antilog of 0.5, press . 5 SHIFT [e^x] = and get about 1.65.

For example, to calculate the common antilog of 0.5, press . 5 SHIFT [10^x] = and get about 3.16. To calculate the natural antilog of 0.5, press . 5 SHIFT [e^x] = and get about 1.65.

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.

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.

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
