pH and a calculator

Postby Ghadir Seder 1G » Sat Nov 30, 2019 6:26 pm

So, I'm working on the pH homework problems and I'm using a TI-30Xa calculator. I can't figure out how to input the information for question 6B.1 into my calculator to get 0.92. However, when I do this on a graphing calculator it works just fine. Any idea as to how to input the equation in the solutions manual into my calculator?

-log (0.12x(HCL))/(HCL)
-log ((0.12x100)/(100))
