Solve for x: a. 2 – log3(x – 2) = log3(x – 2) b. logy(x-­‐4) – logyx = 2logy3 Exponents and Logarithms Assignment 2 3. What is the Richter Scale measurement for an earthquake that is 5 times as intense as an earthquake measuring 8.2 on the Richter scale? 4. The pH scale is used to measure acidity. The pH of a substance is defined as pH = –log[H+]. Where H+ is the concentration of the Hydrogen Ion. The more concentrated it is, the more acidic the substance is. A pH of 7 is neutral, while a pH of 0 is extremely acidic. The PH of lemon juice is about 2.0, while a tomato juice is about 4.5 on the pH scale. How much more acidic (as in how much greater is the concentration of the Hydrogen Ion) is lemon juice than tomato juice? Exponents and Logarithms Assignment 2 5.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
