My problem is that we are using logarithms and exponential calculations, but until our session this week I had no idea that they even existed...

I am allowed to use a calculator to complete these calculations and would appreciate being told how to do these on the calculator as well as how to do it with the good old pen and paper (if its not too hard).

I have to complete a table of results where the first line is completed for me;

Result 1 is

Concentration of fluid is

.01(1x10-8)

**10-8 the minus 8 is supposed to be "to the power of eight"**

The Log of the solution is

$\displaystyle -8$

I understand that $\displaystyle 10-8$ is the equivalent 8 zeros, but thats about all I understand.

Thanks in advance
