ln [5.01E-3] = ln(4.86E-2) - (1.80E-2s-1)(t s) Solve for t.

t = 126 s

First I did 4.86e-2 - 1.80e-2 and then on my calculator I pressed the 2nd button and then ln and got 1.031. Then I did the same thing to get the ln of 5.01e-3 and divided that by 1.031 but did not get 126 as the answer. Where did I mess up?

  • Math -

    Does the equation mean

    ln(.00501) = ln(.0486) - (.0180s - 1)(ts)?

    Doesn't look like that's what you were doing. Try reposting with plenty of parentheses for clarity.

    Use ^ for power if needed as in s^(-1) for 1/s

  • Math -

    yes that's what it means and how I posted it is exactly how it is written on my homework but I just cant seem to get that answer.
