Calculating Concentrations Question

Postby Netpheel Wang 4L » Sun Jan 13, 2019 5:48 pm

Will we ever be doing calculations involving 3rd degree or higher polynomials for concentrations?

If a problem like that appears on a test, we would assume that the constants in the factored expression are much greater than the x value of change. So we would ignore the X's in the 3rd degree polynomial and proceed to calculate with the constants instead.
