Question 6B.9

Postby Sydney Jacobs 1C » Sat Nov 30, 2019 4:21 pm

In textbook question 6B.9, the concentration of [H30+] is given as 1.50. When calculating the pH, (-log[H3O+]= -log[1.50], I got the answer -0.176. Yet, the solution guide says 0.176. How can the pH be positive when the concentration is greater than 1?

I think this might be a typo/error in the solution manual because your work is correct. I got the same numbers as you as well.
