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!!!

Help please.

  1. 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.

    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?

    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+] =
