Log vs ln

Postby sarahtang4B » Wed Mar 13, 2019 2:38 pm

do we need to know how to convert between these two on the final, if so what is the conversion?

log is log base 10, and Ln is log base e. You can use this for conversion though I do not think there will be a problem asking for converting between these two.

The conversion is only done when using the second Nernst equation, however both equations mean the same thing so there is no need to convert in between them once you choose the one you are going to use.

Return to “Appications of the Nernst Equation (e.g., Concentration Cells, Non-Standard Cell Potentials, Calculating Equilibrium Constants and pH)”
