Calculating pH/Concentration

Postby Bijan Mehdizadeh 1B » Sat Dec 08, 2018 3:32 pm

I know that we should know how to calculate pH using the concentration of H+ ions, but will we also be expected to find concentration from pH?

Yes, I think this is a possible question. Finding concentration from pH is basically undoing the log. concentration = 10^-pH

He never said if we were going to be required to know this in class. However, I would still be familiar with the concept in case it does come up since he did do an example of this in class.

Yes, I think it would be good to practice this for the final because a lot of the questions usually require a bit of critical thinking that extends beyond the homework problems. Would be nice if someone could do an example of this type of calculation :)
