Somehow this is on my chemistry homework, and we managed to skip logarithms in my algebra II class. I've looked up logarithms, and it seems to me like these problems are missing something, but you decide:

Find the value of log y if

a. Y = 1.6 x 10^-4

b. Y^2 = 1.6 x 10^-4

c. Y^(1/2) = 1.6 x 10^-4

Please excuse my lack of good math formatting here. I'm afraid I don't have time at the moment to figure out how the "math" tags work.

Anyway, correct me if I'm wrong, but don't logarithm problems require another number after the log n (n being any number/variable)?

This is really stumping me.
