Objectives

Use properties to simplify logarithmic expressions.

Translate between logarithms in any base.

slide4

The logarithmic function for pH that you saw in the previous lessons, pH =–log[H+], can also be expressed in exponential form, as 10–pH= [H+].

Because logarithms are exponents, you can derive the properties of logarithms from the properties of exponents

slide6

The property in the previous slide can be used in reverse to write a sum of logarithms (exponents) as a single logarithm, which can often be simplified.

Helpful Hint

Think: logj+ loga+ logm = logjam

slide10

Remember that to divide powers with the same base, you subtract exponents

Because logarithms are exponents, subtracting logarithms with the same base is the same as finding the logarithms of the quotient with that base.

slide11

Caution

Just as a5b3 cannot be simplified, logarithms must have the same base to be simplified.

The property above can also be used in reverse.

slide12

Example 2: Subtracting Logarithms

log5100 – log54

Helpful Hint

The Richter scale is logarithmic, so an increase of 1 corresponds to a release of 10 times as much energy.

Logarithmic scales are useful for measuring quantities that have a very wide range of values, such as the intensity (loudness) of a sound or the energy released by an earthquake.

slide29

Example 6: Geology Application

The tsunami that devastated parts of Asia in December 2004 was spawned by an earthquake with magnitude 9.3 How many times as much energy did this earthquake release compared to the 6.9-magnitude earthquake that struck San Francisco in1989?

The Richter magnitude of an earthquake, M, is related to the energy released in ergs E given by the formula.

Substitute 9.3 for M.

Multiply both sides by .
