05.12.11  probably going to see little success with this, but none of my friends know this either.

05.12.11  use the internet this is fucking high school chemistry

05.12.11  doesnt it have to be the natural log of something? im a math major and it HAS been a while since i have done chemistry so maybe there's something i don't know about there...but i didn't know you could do ln by itself

05.12.11  Lol, high school chemistry. I remember I took a test once and it asked something like how do you know so and so is true. I replied, "I just know." Ahhh high school :)

05.12.11  "How do I manipulate this"
if you're gonna manipulate it, just change the value of "a" 
AnotherBrick
05.12.11  ya, i dont get the question 
SowingSeason
05.12.11  anyways, can't you just cross multiply so that 9.408A = 15ln, then divide by 9.408 to get A = 15ln / 9.408? lemme know if that works 
crazyblinddude
05.12.11  I'm pretty sure you just use Pe^rt, but I'm not even sure what you're asking. 
whywontyoudie
05.12.11  Sowing, cross multiplying won't work. my friend just texted me and said i have to do e^9.408 for it to work.
and AnotherBrick, I'm sorry if I suck at explaining the question, but I don't get it myself.

AnotherBrick
05.12.11  ya, was gonna say you needed to do e^ but wasnt quite sure what you were saying lol

05.12.11  This is why I didn't take chemistry.

05.12.11  oh yeah duh
e cancels out ln

05.12.11  i'm terrible at math. i have the mathematical proficiency of a 7 year old. 
Emim
05.12.11  Holy crap 
AnotherBrick
05.12.11  Haha think you tricked most people with chemistry in the title. 
whywontyoudie
05.12.11  well this is for chemistry, but just the math portion of the class. everything else i understand pretty well.

05.12.11  I barely survived Organic Chemistry so I'm no help.
A girl got raped around the Chemistry Department not too long ago, to which I replied "it was a harsh metaphor for the university's Chemistry department and their raping of the students."
Didn't go over too well. 
whywontyoudie
05.12.11  i wouldn't survive a month in organic. i'm barely going to make it through ap chem next year.
but i don't see why that didn't go over too well, those people need to loosen up.

05.12.11  sounds like a lame joke and lame friends : /

05.12.11  rape jokes aren't cool bro
fuck natural logarithms

05.12.11  ^username is misleading 
toxin.
05.12.11  That doesn't even make sense. How do you have an ln without something in it lol 
toxin.
05.12.11  I guess it's just inverse ln? Idk, just put e^(9.408) and you get your value of 12,000 whatever. 
whywontyoudie
05.12.11  yeah, it's inverse natural log. my teacher just never said it up front though. i have the situation under control now.

05.12.11  thought this was gonna be about me and ire 
whywontyoudie
05.12.11  well, it can be. subjects seem to get changed a lot so you can have your bromance all over this. i don't mind.

Kubrick
05.13.11  What the hell is ln(natural log)
.. taking the natural log of the natural log? 
bloc
05.13.11  What are you taking ln of? It doesn't make sense without having a number or variable after it. 
wyankeif1337
05.13.11  assuming it's 15/A = 9.408/ln(X)
15/A = 12,185.48
A = 12,185.48/15 = 812.365
812.365 = 9.408/ln(x)
812.365(ln(x)) = 9.408
ln(x) = 9.408/812.365 = .01158
ln(x) = .01158
e^.01158 = X
X=1.0116
i might be totally off base, but that's my best shot at the problem based on what you said.
