This Log and Antilog calculator makes the log/antilog calculations in which the logarithm of a number to a given base is the power/exponent to which the base must be raised in order to equal that specific no.

What are the log laws and rules?

  • Logarithm formula:

When: b y = a. Results that the base b logarithm of a number a is logb a = y

  • Antilogarithm equation:

When: y = logb a. Results that the antilogarithm (inverse logarithm) is determined by raising the base b to the logarithm y: a = logb-1(y) = b y

  • The product rule of the logarithm:

logb(n ∙ m) = logb(n) + logb(m)

  • The Logarithm quotient rule

logb(n / m) = logb(n) - logb(m)

  • The power rule of the Logarithm

logb(a y) = y ∙ logb(a)

  • Logarithm base change rule

logb(a) = logc(a) / logc(b)

  • Logarithm base switch rule

logb(a) = 1 / loga(b)

How does this log and antilog calculator work?

This calculator has 2 tabs each one designated to perform a specific calculation, as detailed below:

  • The 1st tab can help you calculate the logarithm for a specific number and with a specific base. For example it can find the log10(100000) which is equal to 5 and it will return as well the antilog result which in this case is 105 = 100000.
  • The 2nd tab can be used to discover the antilogarithm for a value and with a specific logarithm base. It finds the Inverse Log values with respect to the base given. For example the antilog of 12 with the e(2.71828183) base is equal to 162754.791419.
