I figured this would be the place to find somebody who's used the TI-89 . . at least I hope so.

I'm doing a chemistry assignment, and I've a problem. I'm supposed to find the natural antilogarithm (at least that's what I think I'm doing) of a number . . I've done a ton of calculations and this is the last step, I'm so frustrated to be sooo close.

Basically . . I need to figure out how to use my TI-89 to find out what e^(-somenumber) is. Oh, yeah, and it's due in the morning. :D

    Hi princess_of_reason,

    You might be knowing...

    exp(x) is nothing but antilog( x ) to base e

    y = log10 (x) => x = 10^y


    y = ln (x) => x = e^y

    You can use this in your calculator...

    Hope this helps :)

    On the TI-89, I've found that you would press the green diamond button, then ln. Is that the same? I'm not sure. . :?
