Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you meant hydroxide ions, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't so that was the exact question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Is there a formula? I could do it if I had one.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1in your question, you said hydronium but then you wrote OH, which one is it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think the () is supposed to be up higher if that makes a difference. 1.8 × 10^4 M OH^

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess that makes no sense at all

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lol no i understand that part.. but hydronium = H3O+ and hydroxide OH so it's hydroxide? lol i'm just confused b/c you said two different things and one or the other completely changes the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well the question it asked me was that so i dont know if its right or not :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there must be a type somewhere if it's 1.8 × 10^4 M OH^ .. use the equations i gave you first if it's 1.8 × 10^4 M H3O+ then just use pH= log[H3O+]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what do I put into the equation. Whats a log Ahhh sorry I sound so stupid I suck so bad at chemistry :(

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you input the number.. 1.8 × 10^4 or 0.00018 then press log on your calculator .. which turns into a logarithm base 10 then press the negative sign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay I did that I got  3.74472749..... Does that sound right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you didn't press the negative sign, it's supposed to be 3.74 if it was a negative number it would be very very acidic

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohhhh, okay. Does that mean the ph is 3.74..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if the concentration they gave you was in H3O+ ions, if it was OH you have to subtract from 14

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so 143.74? so 10.26
