Please, can someone help?
Evaluate log 1.
This is my work up until I have gotten stuck:
I can't find a common base for 1 and 10^x.
Wow, my apologies, this is algebra, not chemistry.
but actually I think they use it in chemistry too...
Take the log base 10 of each side.
log 1 = log 10^x
I don't understand what you mean by taking the log base 10 of each side.
ok so far you had
10^x = 1, but 10^0 =1
it would be intuitively obvious that x=0
Thank you. I never thought of that.
