lnQ vs logQ

Postby Edmund Zhi 2B » Mon Mar 02, 2020 11:35 pm

Using either would be ok, right? As long as we use the correct constants (ex 0.025693/n vs 0.0592/n)

Yes, I believe it would just depend on which constants you use; so remember that lnQ and logQ are not the same!

It is ok to use either but remember that the those two are not the same thing.

Yes both are okay but it is important not to get them mixed up because they equate to different values.

The logQ is especially helpful if calculating/given the pH!

Yep! it is okay to use both as long as you remember the conversion constant involved (lnx=2.303logx).
