**Logarithms**Logarithmic functions play an important role in science and engineering. The Richter scale is used to measure the strength of Earthquakes and is based on a logarithmic function.**Logarithms**Logarithmic functions play an important role in science and engineering. The Richter scale is used to measure the strength of Earthquakes and is based on a logarithmic function. Logarithms are basically a restatement of known facts about exponents shown using special symbolism.**Logarithms**Logarithmic functions play an important role in science and engineering.

Consider this rule :**Logarithms**Logarithmic functions play an important role in science and engineering. The Richter scale is used to measure the strength of Earthquakes and is based on a logarithmic function. Logarithms are basically a restatement of known facts about exponents shown using special symbolism. Consider this rule : - where “b” is a base, raised to some exponent “u”**Logarithms**Logarithmic functions play an important role in science and engineering. The Richter scale is used to measure the strength of Earthquakes and is based on a logarithmic function. Logarithms are basically a restatement of known facts about exponents shown using special symbolism. Consider this rule : - where “b” is a base, raised to some exponent “u” - What exponent “u” should I raise “b” to and get “v” ?**Logarithms**Logarithmic functions play an important role in science and engineering.

Just plug in “b” and it will give “u”**A commonly used logarithm in real world applications such as**compound interest is the Natural Logarithm.
