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.

How do I find the antilog button on my TI-36X Pro or calculate it with other buttons?


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

How do you use the -log function on the TI-30XA calculator? I downloaded the manual and there is no instruction for finding the -log of a number


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.

Using the correct key combination to determine inverse log


Hi,
Sorry to contradict you but there are many types of logarithms, the most important ones are
  1. the common logarithms (log in base 10),
  2. the natural logarithms (logarithms in base e)
  3. the binary logarithms (logarithms in base 2)
On calculators, the common logarithms are labeled [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.

Find the antilog on the TI-84 Plus for finding pH in chemistry problems


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.

Find the antilog on the TI-83 Plus for finding pH in chemistry problems


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))))) ^^

Chemistry problem


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.

Antilog in chemistry problem


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
