[H3O+] and [OH-]

How do you convert between [H3O+] and [OH-] such as in problem 6B.9?

I believe H3O+ is just another way to represent H+ ions in water. I believe [H3O+] is equivalent to the [H+].

to convert between [H3O+] and [OH-], use [H3O+]=10-pHmol . L-1. pH+pOH = 14 maximum, so we can use this equation to find and convert between [H3O+] and [OH-].

If you want to calculate directly [H3O+][OH-]=10^-14.
