Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Create a graph of the pH function either by hand or using technology. Locate on your graph where the pH value is 0 and where it is 1. You may need to zoom in on your graph.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2does p(t) = −log10t. mean \[ p(t)=  \log_{10} t \] or \[ p(t) = −\log(10t)\]?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, I just googled it. Yes the first way. \[ p(t)=  \log_{10} t \] pick some values for t. I would pick powers of 10 (because it is easy to "take the log" ) thus let t= 0.001 (i.e. t= 10^3 t= 0.01, or t= 10^2 t= 0.1 or t= 10^1 t= 1, t= 10^0 t=10 , t= 10^1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok, then how would u graph it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2first, what is the log of 10^3 ? \[ \log_{10} \left(10^{3} \right) = \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.210^3 is 0.001 the log of 0.001 is the exponent (assuming we use base 10) in other words \[ \log_{10}(0.001) = \log_{10}\left( 10^{3}\right) \] what is the exponent ?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok. \[ p(t)=  \log_{10} t \\= 1 \cdot \log(0.001) \\= 1 \cdot 3 = 3 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so (0.001, 3) is a point on the graph hopefully you can figure out the following points (0.01,2) (0.1, 1) (1,0) (10,1) (100,2) (1000,3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Anyways, I'll figure it out:) No worries!! This is the 2nd part. 2. The pool maintenance man forgot to bring his logarithmic charts, and he needs to raise the amount of hydronium ions, t, in the pool by 0.50. To do this, he can use the graph you created. Use your graph to find the pH level if the amount of hydronium ions is raised to 0.50. Then, convert the logarithmic function into an exponential function using y for the pH.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What about the 2nd part of the question?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2zoom in on your graph, and click on the curve when it has y=0.5 what do you get for the x value ?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2for ** convert the logarithmic function into an exponential function using y for the pH.*** y=  log(t) or, after multiplying by 1 on both sides: y = log(t) now make each side the exponent of 10 \[ 10^{y} = 10^{\log t} \] the right side becomes t \[ 10^{y} = t \\ t= 10^{y} \]

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, 0.316 is good using the exponential equation \[ t= 10^{0.5} = \frac{1}{\sqrt{10}} = 0.316228\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, we just converted it right? And that would be the answer to the question?

phi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yes, the work to find the exponential form is up above. and I used it to check your answer... and as you see we get the same number (rounded of course)
