From compound interest to bubonic plague, things that grow or spread really fast are often modeled by exponential functions. Learn about these powerful functions (pun intended?).

\(pH\) measures the concentration of hydrogen ions \(H^+\) in a solution. Let \(pH=m\) if the number of gram ions of \(H^+\) in a \(1\)-liter solution is \(10^{-m}\).

Then the ratio of the number of gram ions of \(H^+\) for \(pH=6.5\) and the number of gram ions of \(H^+\) for \(pH=7.9\) can be expressed as \(10^a.\) What is the value of \(100a?\)
