    Hi guys..this is a fairly general question. With no calculators, is it unlikely that we'll be given any questions that require us to calculate the natural logarithm (ln) of anything?

    For example, the nerst equation, or any gibbs free energy calculations where temperature and concentration deviates from standard conditions...

    no... no.... no... at the most you'll have to set up the equation or algebraically manipulate it

    You should know how to calculate log's though (for pH's and other things).

    good point... but it's easy enough log of 10^n = n ... that's the extent of it
