the log of 1 is 0 (zero)

the log of ten is one.

When you take 10 to an exponent, then you have the number for which the logarithm stands.

What is an antilogarithm?

An antilogarithm is the number of which the given number is the logarithm (to a given base). If x is the logarithm of y, then y is the antilogarithm of x.

What does the term 'logarithm' mean?

That's the power to which a base must be raised to produce a given number - see the related link below:

What is logarithm?

a quantity representing the power to which a fixed number (the base) must be raised to produce a given number.

What is the difference between the common logarithm and the natural logarithm?

A logarithm is the exponent to which a number called a base is raised to become a different specific number. A common logarithm uses 10 as the base and a natural logarithm uses the number e (approximately 2.71828) as the base.

What is a natural logarithm?

That is a logarithm to the base "e", where "e" is a number that is approximately 2.718.

Are inverse and power of -1 the same?

Sometimes. The inverse of y sin x is y sin-1x, the inverse of a number is one divided by the number, also called the reciprocal of the number, y x, then y-1 x-1 1/x. However, the inverse logarithm of a given number is the number whose logarithm is the given number. Log of 1000 is 3 and 1000 is inverse log 3.

Is a logarithm an irrational number?

Usually, but not necessarily. A logarithm that is not an integer-value is irrational. For example log10100 = 2 which is a rational number. log1012 = 1.0791812460476... which is an irrational number.

What is twice the base of natural logarithm?

The "base of the natural logarithm" is the number known as "e". It is approximately 2.718.

What is the equation for population density?

Population density refers to the measurement of population in a given area. Its equation is given as PD = N / A, where PD stands for population density, N stands for the number of organisms and A stands for the area.

Why is log -10 display an error on the calculator?

In the real numbers, the logarithm is only defined for positive numbers. The logarithm of zero or a negative number is undefined. (For calculators who work with complex number, only the logarithm of zero is undefined.) This follows from the definition of the logarithm, as the solution of: 10x = whatever "Whatever" is the number of which you want to calculate the logarithm. Since 10x is always positive, that means you can't find an "x" such that the power results in a negative number, or in zero. The same applies if you use a base other than 10, for example the number e = 2.718...

Is it possible for a logarithm to equal a negative number?

Yes. The logarithm of 1 is zero; the logarithm of any number less than one is negative. For example, in base 10, log(0.1) = -1, log(0.01) = -2, log(0.001) = -3, etc.

What is the power to which it is necessary to raise a base number to produce a desired number?

The logarithm of that number to the base.

Compare and contrast common logarithm with natural logarithm?

The natural logarithm is the logarithm having base e, whereThe common logarithm is the logarithm to base 10.You can probably find both definitions in wikipedia.

What are some examples of logarithms?

A logarithm answers the question of how many times you must multiply a number by itself to get another number. For example, 3x3x3 is 9, so to get 9, the logarithm is 3.

In the continuous compounding equation e is the natural log to the base 10?

A "natural logarithm" is a logarithm to the base e, notto the base 10. Base 10 is sometimes called "common logarithm". The number e is approximately 2.71828.

What does In x equal?

ln x is the natural logarithm of x, that is the logarithm to base e where e is euler's number (an irrational number that starts 2.71828...). If y = ln x then x = ey

What is the notation for a logarithm with base 10?

The logarithm of a number with base=B is written as [ logB(N) ].If the base is 10, it's called the "common logarithm" of N and the base isn't written. [ log(N) ].If the base is 'e', it's called the "natural logarithm" of N, and written [ ln(N) ].

What is a number or expression using a base and an exponent?

Most likely it is a logarithm.

Is there more composite numbers than prime numberswhy?

Yes. Why? Because half of the numbers are even, that is, divisible by two. Of the remaining (odd) numbers, some are divisible by 3, 5, 7, 11, etc., so - out of any reasonably large set of numbers - more than half will be composite. The following formula gives a rough approximation of the number of primes up to a given number, where the given number is "n": Number of primes up to a number "n" = n / ln n Where "ln" is the natural logarithm (logarithm to the base e).

What irrational number is the base of a natural logarithm?

The number is called e, and it is approximately equal to 2.718.
