Find the concentration of H3O if the pOH of a solution is 11.700:

So far I have: pH= 14.000- pOH which is 14.000-11.700=2.300

pH = -log[H3)]
-2.300 = log[H3O]

Lost after that!!!

You're almost there.
log(H3O^+) = -2.3
Set -2.3 up on your calculator. Press the 10x key. And the answer comes out. You should get 0.00501 or 5 x 10-3 depending upon how you have your calculator set up to display the answer.

Thanks a lot. I just couldn't get there.

hey guys I posted this awhile ago im not sure if anyone has read it or whatever but here it is again find the PH of a .00580 M solution of the strong base KOH. is it -log(.00580)= 2.24 pOH = -log[OH-] pH + pOH = 14.00 Therefore, pOH …

Calculate the hydronium ion consentration and the hydroxide concentration in blood in which the PH is 7.3. Hydronium = [H3O+] = 10-pH or [H3O+] = antilog (- pH) and I got 1.00 x 10^7.3 for both concentrations is this correct?

this makes absolutley no sense I plug all this into my calculator but I get different results. The hydronium ion concentration can be found from the pH by the reverse of the mathematical operation employed to find the pH. [H3O+] = …

this is my question Calculate the hydronium ion consentration and the hydroxide concentration in blood in which the PH is 7.3. I don't have invlog on my calculator so I hit log(7.3)= .863 for hydronium. Is this dumb for me to do?

can you check if I did the problems correctly?

1) use the properties of logarithms to simplify the logarithmic expression. log base 10 (9/300) log - log 300 log 9 = 2 log 3 log 300 = log 3 + log 100 = log 3+2 I just do not know how to put these together now!
