This function is for BASIC compatibility. It is not available in pure JavaScript projects.



Log returns a double-precision value equal to the natural logarithm of a number. The required parameter, number, is any numeric expression. The natural logarithm is the base e logarithm; e is approximately equal to 2.718282.

Calculating base-n logarithm of x is achieved by dividing the natural logarithm of x by the natural logarithm of n.

Example (Basic)

Rem Log Example
'Log calculates natural logarithms
Dim e
e = 2.718282
Print "Log(1) = " & Log(1)
Print "Log(e) = " & Log(e)
Print "Log10(2) = " & LogN(10, 2)

Function LogN(Base, Number)
  LogN = LOG(Number) / LOG(Base)
End Function


LOG(1) = 0
LOG(e) = 1
LOG10(2) = 0.30103
