### homework question

On 6N5a, how did the negative on -.0257 disappear? It says when you do 0.06/(2.303x0.0257) that 0.0257 is positive when its supposed to be -? shouldn't the pH end up being negative?

Conceptually pH can't be negative. I'm not sure about the problem itself.

Return to “Appications of the Nernst Equation (e.g., Concentration Cells, Non-Standard Cell Potentials, Calculating Equilibrium Constants and pH)”
