Since computers use base 2 why do humans insist on using the base 10?
we humans use the base 10 because it is easier and more comfortable for us than the base 2 used by computers and as such we require less memory in our brain to fathom the answer of a question and subsequently answer or compute them easily that base 2 ...

How do you convert natural log into binary log?
log2x = log x / log 2 On the right side, you can use logarithm in any base (calculators usually provide base-10 and base-e), just be sure to use the same base in both cases. Thus: log2x = ln x / ln 2 or: log2x = log10x / log102 ...

Importance of binary numbers in computer?
the importance of binary numbers in standard computing is basically everything. computers only understand base 2, that is a 0 (off) and a 1 (on). every piece of data passed through any part of the computer is done so using base 2 (binary). that said, there are theorised base 3 computers, called 'genetic computers' which use genes and magnetism to produce a base 3 process, but this was only done as a computer sciences project and is likely to not every be implemented...

How many times do you have to times 2 for it to equal 16384?
You will need 14 two's multiplied together to equal 16384. the answer to this can be found by log2(16384) = 14. Since most calculators don't have log base 2, you can do this: log(16384)/log(2) = 14. You can use the 'base 10' log or natural log [ln(16384)/ln(2) = 14] ...

Who invented the first calculator ever made?
The FIRST calculator was the abacus- made so long ago, we have no records of who invented it. Blaise Pascal created a mechanical calculator in1620, but the first successful calculator was Thomas de Colmar in France in 1820. Electronic calculators came after the creation of computers during WW 2. IBM and Sharp created some of the earliest electronic calculators. ...

Why you need different number system when computer work on binary?
Different number systems are taught, for one, to let you understand the basic concepts. Most number systems, however, will seldom be used. If you work with computers, you will mainly need: Base 10, because that is the system we commonly use in "real life". Base 2, because that is the system used internally by computers. Base 16, often used as a shortcut to express base 2 numbers. Base 8 can also be used as such a shortcut, but it is not commonly used nowadays. Base 8...

What are the limitation of computers?
1.Humans learn by them selves Computers cant, we have to program them. 2.Humans dont Need computers to survive... we grow our own food in the world, but computers need Electricity... and computers dont know how to make it. they probably dont even know how to, it might be in a server but Computers dont "realise" 3. Humans have freedom... computers are programmes... we switch them on, wait a minute (dont do nothing) and the computers just sits there doing nothing wereas we can...

How does a computer calculate numbers?
Computers transfer everything into a simple 2-digit code. The values are either 1 or O. This is the Base 2 number system. The Base 2 Numbers is easy for computers to handle because electricity can be On or Off. The electrical current flips a magnet-type device in its memory so that it is either in a 0 state or a 1 state. This is how the memory stores anything no matter how complext the data is. Any number in the Base...
