## "Algebra" In Chemistry

__The following are formulas utilized in a General High School
Chemistry Course.__

^{o}K = ^{o}C + 273

**Isn't this simple ADDITION?**

^{o}C = ^{o}K - 273

**Isn't this simple SUBTRACTION?**

### D = M / V

**Isn't this simple DIVISION?**

### pH = -log [H^{+}]

**Isn't this simple MULTIPLICATION?**

### (P_{1})(V_{1}) = (P_{2})(V_{2})

### (N_{a})(V_{a}) = (N_{b})(V_{b})

**Notice any similarity?**

### V_{1} / T_{1} = V_{2} / T_{2}

### P_{1} / T_{1} = P_{2} / T_{2}

**Notice any similarity?**

### K_{a} = [X][X] / [M]

### (Partial / Total) X 100 = %

^{o}C = 5 / 9 (F-32)

^{o}F = (9 / 5 C) + 32

### Heat Required = (Mass)(Specific Heat)(Change in Temperature)

### PV = nRT

### (P_{1})(V_{1}) / T_{1} = (P_{2})(V_{2})
/ T_{2}

**These must be the tough ones?**

__An Understanding of Scientific Notation is Required__

### 1997 = 1.997 X 10^{3}

### .00001997 = 1.997 X 10^{-5}

##### At Kellogg High School Algebra I was declared a prerequisite (1970) for
entry into Chemistry because it covered ALL areas of proficiency necessary to
satisfactorily complete the above examples.

##### Are You Proficient?

**If so, you should consider High School Chemistry OR
its equivalent.**
