I know what the formal definition of ph is, and I am comfortable with logarithms, anti-logs, and the laws of exponents. Still, I get confused doing actual calculations and would greatly appreciate your input on the following:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose something has a ph of 3.5-How do you calculate the hydrogen ion concentration?

Suppose something has a ph of 7.2- How do you calculate the hysdrogen ion concentration?

Suppose that something has a hydrogen ion concentration of 2.8 times ten to the minus 15-How do you calculate its ph?

Suppose that something has a hydrogen ion concentration of 3.6 times ten to the minus 9-How do you calculate its ph?:surprised Yonderboy98
