Question: log M (Hg) = 8.5 where mw of Hg=200.59 (it's the negative sign in front of log that confuses me).
thanks Hi Brenda, I am not sure what you are doing but I can interpret the negative sign in front of the log. It comes from the fact that log(a^{b}) = b log(a). In your case you have b = 1 so log(a) = (1) log(a) = log(a^{1}) = log(1/a)
Cheers
