Natural logarithm

ln(x) = loge(x) = y

The e constant or Euler's number is:

e ≈ 2.71828183

Ln as inverse function of exponential function

The natural logarithm function ln(x) is the inverse function of the exponential function ex.

For x>0,

f (f -1(x)) = eln(x) = x

Or

f -1(f (x)) = ln(ex) = x

Natural logarithm rules and properties

Rule name Rule Example

Product rule

ln(x ∙ y) = ln(x) + ln(y)

ln(37) = ln(3) + ln(7)

Quotient rule

ln(x / y) = ln(x) - ln(y)

ln(3 / 7) = ln(3) - ln(7)

Power rule

ln(x y) = y ∙ ln(x)

ln(28) = 8ln(2)

ln derivative

f (x) = ln(x) f ' (x) = 1 / x  

ln integral

ln(x)dx = x ∙ (ln(x) - 1) + C  

ln of negative number

ln(x) is undefined when x ≤ 0  

ln of zero

ln(0) is undefined  

 

ln of one

ln(1) = 0  

ln of infinity

lim ln(x) = ∞ ,when x→∞  
Euler's identity ln(-1) = iπ  

Logarithm product rule

The logarithm of the multiplication of x and y is the sum of logarithm of x and logarithm of y.

logb(x ∙ y) = logb(x) + logb(y)

For example:

log10(37) = log10(3) + log10(7)

Logarithm quotient rule

The logarithm of the division of x and y is the difference of logarithm of x and logarithm of y.

logb(x / y) = logb(x) - logb(y)

For example:

log10(3 / 7) = log10(3) - log10(7)

Logarithm power rule

The logarithm of x raised to the power of y is y times the logarithm of x.

logb(x y) = y ∙ logb(x)

For example:

log10(28) = 8log10(2)

Derivative of natural logarithm

The derivative of the natural logarithm function is the reciprocal function.

When

f (x) = ln(x)

The derivative of f(x) is:

f ' (x) = 1 / x

Integral of natural logarithm

The integral of the natural logarithm function is given by:

When

f (x) = ln(x)

The integral of f(x) is:

f (x)dx = ∫ ln(x)dx = x ∙ (ln(x) - 1) + C

Ln of 0

The natural logarithm of zero is undefined:

ln(0) is undefined

The limit near 0 of the natural logarithm of x, when x approaches zero, is minus infinity:

Ln of 1

The natural logarithm of one is zero:

ln(1) = 0

Ln of infinity

The limit of natural logarithm of infinity, when x approaches infinity is equal to infinity:

lim ln(x) = ∞, when x→∞

Complex logarithm

For complex number z:

z = re = x + iy

The complex logarithm will be (n = ...-2,-1,0,1,2,...):

Log z = ln(r) + i(θ+2nπ) = ln(√(x2+y2)) + i·arctan(y/x))
