# log10

Common logarithm (base 10)

Y = log10(X)

## Description

example

Y = log10(X) returns the common logarithm of each element in array X. The function accepts both real and complex inputs. For real values of X in the interval (0, Inf), log10 returns real values in the interval (-Inf ,Inf). For complex and negative real values of X, the log10 function returns complex values.

## Examples

Examine several values of the base 10 logarithm function.

Calculate the common logarithm of 1.

log10(1)
ans = 0

The result is 0, so this is the x-intercept of the log10 function.

Calculate the common logarithm of 10.

log10(10)
ans = 1

The result is 1 since .

Calculate the common logarithm of 100.

log10(100)
ans = 2

The result is 2 since .

Calculate the common logarithm of 0.

log10(0)
ans = -Inf

The result is -Inf since .

Create a vector of real numbers in the interval [0.5,10].

X = (0.5:0.5:10)';

Calculate the common logarithm of X.

Create two Cartesian grids for X and Y.

[X,Y] = meshgrid(0:0.5:1.5,-2:0.5:2);

Calculate the complex base 10 logarithm on the grid. Use 1i for improved speed and robustness with complex arithmetic.
