Logarithm word problems are a constant in the study of Chemistry and Earth Science. The scale that measures how acidic or basic a substance is based on the logarithmic scale to measure the concentration of hydrogen ion in a solution. The Richter scale that quantifies the intensity of an Earthquake also involves finding the logarithmic vale of the quotient of the intensity and the movement detected. Your students will use these activity sheets to review how to use logarithmic expressions to answer word problems.
