Re: How to make the same two expressions

If you solve the equation expr1==expr2 for a, then you get a function 
af[b_] which tells you for each value of b (within the range of 
definition) the value a which makes the two expressions equal.

(* your expressions *)
expr1 = -1.0019 - 1. Log[0.00190438 - 0.0249519 b] + (0.000040093 a
Log[0.152644/(0.152644 + 2 b)])/b;
expr2 = -1.00004 - 1. Log[0.0000378969 - 0.0249519 b] + (0.000040093 a
Log[0.0030376/(0.0030376 + 2 b)])/b;

(* the equation *)
eq = expr1 == expr2;

(* solving for a *)
af[b_] = a /. Solve[eq, a][[1]]; // Chop

(* now some values *)
bmin = -0.0015188;
bmax = -bmin;
db = (bmax - bmin)/10;

Table[{b, af[b]}, {b, bmin + db, bmax - db, db}]
{{-0.00121504, 63.6567}, {-0.00091128, 86.9868}, {-0.00060752,
108.195}, {-0.00030376, 129.314}, {0., Indeterminate}, {0.00030376,
175.787}, {0.00060752, 203.935}, {0.00091128, 239.29}, {0.00121504,
292.055}}

Here I have omitted some error messages connected with b=0.

For b->0 we find

Limit[af[b], b -> 0]
151.47

You can also depict the function graphically
Plot[af[b], {b, bmin, bmax}];
to see that the whole range a>0 is covered.

Hope this helps.
Regards,
Wolfgang
