In science and engineering, a log–log graph or log–log plot is a two-dimensional graph of numerical data that uses logarithmic scales on both the horizontal and vertical axes. Monomials – relationships of the form
y
=
a
x
k
{\displaystyle y=ax^{k}}
– appear as straight lines in a log–log graph, with the power term corresponding to the slope, and the constant term corresponding to the intercept of the line. Thus these graphs are very useful for recognizing these relationships and estimating parameters. Any base can be used for the logarithm, though most commonly base 10 (common logs) are used.
I haven't used a log table in a long time and the one I used in High School went from 10 to 99 with four significant figures for the logarithms.
I wondered how did Briggs create a log table 400 years ago? How did he find the logarithm of 7(base 10)?
I looked around the internet and You Tube and...
In another thread the concept of how many seconds in a year came up and it made me think of putting milestones of a human lifetime on a log scale. Units are seconds. Please feel free to amend or change or just make it better. Maybe an actual plot? What strikes me is most of life is in the last...
Hi,
I tutor maths to High School students.
I had a question today that I was unsure of. Can the natural log be to the base 2?
The student brought the question to me from their maths exam where the question was: Differentiate ln(base2) x^2
If the natural log is the inverse of e then how does...

My log burner is just too powerful for everyday use. It is spec'd at 5kW and has an area of about 200X400mm. It's a single fuel design with no bottom vent. The air control is quite clever. It has an 'air curtain' supply which comes down from the top and two adjustable slots in the doors to get...

Hello,
I'm trying to follow Wolfram to do a least square fitting. There are multiple summations in the two equations to find the coefficients. Are the i's the same in this case?

I was watching this video about how they invented log tables and some things I do not understand.
At 5:12 he changes the scaling from 1's to 10's I don't understand how this is allowed. The number represents the number of times the base was multiplied by itself. In the seconds before this...
Hi,
I am trying to solve the following equation:

I think log(36) would be 18. Note log is ##\mathbf log_2 ##
Somebody please guide me.

Given
ln(ab) = b⋅ln(a)
Then
ln(1x) = x⋅ln(1)
Also
ln(2x) = x⋅ln(2)
Say
ln(2x) = ln(1x)
Then Also
x⋅ln(2) = x⋅ln(1)
But, dividing both sides by x
ln(2) ≠ ln(1)
Similarly,
x⋅ln(2) = x⋅ln(1)
Dividing both sides by x and ln(2)
1 ≠ 0
But we know x = 0 as per the original statement...

If we have log 3 (x+9) + 2 = y. It states that we have a HT 9 units left and 2 units up. But if we manipulate that too
log 3 (x+9) = y - 2

3^(y-2) = x + 9 or 3^(y-2) - 9 = x
