Basically you first have to put your answer into scientific notation by pressing the 3rd key then the 6 key. The screen display should change to one big zero and two small zeros.

I was workinggon the same problem with a -log of a chemistry problem to get pH and I knew the answer because I calculated it on it TI-85, but we are not allowed to use graphing calulators on the exam (:-((() so I had to figure out how to do it on this one!

For example, I had pH =-log(2.828947x10^4)

On the TI-36X you change to scientific notation using the instructions above. Once the three zeros enter on the screen:
[4]
[-]
[2nd]
[10^x]

1^-04 should appear on screen, then you multiply by 2.828947

[x]
[2][.][828947]

2.828947 in big numbers and in small numbers -04
From there you simply press:
[log]
and your answer will show up as a negative number. Just take the absolute value of that and you have your answer. Took me like 30 minutes the night before a huge chemistry exam to figure that out! Hope it helps someone!

Well, I am not sure, because I do not own a TI-36X SOLAR. but the answer to your example is 3. The [LOG] key on the TI graphing calculators is at position {1,6} (first column, 6th button down.)

### Change base log

The TI 86 has two logarithmic functions: natural logarithm (ln) and common (decimal) logarithms (log). If you need the logarithm in any other base than e or 10 you need to use one of the two equivalent expressions
log_b(x) =ln(x)/ln(b) =log(x)/log(b)
Here b is the value of the base of the logarithm and x is the argument (the value whose logarithm you are seeking). Of course the argument x must be a positive number.
Note: On the TI 86 the log function can calculate the logarithm of a complex number, according to the manual.

### TI-84 Calculator Gives Me the Wrong Logarithm Solution

"log(2)8" means "common logarithm of 2 multiplied by 8".

The TI-84 has three different logarithm functions.
log is the common (base-10) logarithm.
ln is the natural (base-e) logarithm.
logBASE lets you take the logarithm to any positive base.

If you want the log base 2 of 8, you want logBASE(2,8). You'll find the logBASE function in the catalog, accessible by pressing 2ND [CATALOG] ). CATALOG is the shifted function of the 0 key, the ) gets you to the Ls in the catalog.

### Where can I find the log values in TI 89

For natural logarithms, you can use the ln function (2ND shift of the X key). For example, the natural logarithm of 3 is 2ND [LN] 3 ) ENTER.

For logarithms to other bases, use the log function (diamond shift of the 7 key). For example, the base-2 logarithm of 16 is diamond 7 1 6 , 2 ) ENTER. If the base is 10 (common logarithms), you can omit the comma and the second argument.

### HOW DO I TYPE IN LOG BASE 3 OF 18 IN MY TI 30X

You can calculate the log to any base by using the relationship logb(x) = log(x)/log(b) = ln(x)/ln(b). In words, the base-b logarithm of x is the logarithm of x divided by the logarithm of b.

So, to calculate the log base 3 of 18, press
1 8 LOG / 3 LOG =
or
1 8 LN / 3 LN =

### On the TI-36X, whihc key is the inverse key and

The inverse key is marked "1/x" (second key on the third row). The natural logarithm key is marked "LN" (fourth key on the top row).

### Using the correct key combination to determine inverse log

Hi,
Sorry to contradict you but there are many types of logarithms, the most important ones are
2. the natural logarithms (logarithms in base e)
3. the binary logarithms (logarithms in base 2)
On calculators, the common logarithms are labeled [LOG], and the natural logarithms are labeled [LN].

The inverse function of the natural log function is the exponential (e^(x)), and the inverse of the log in base ten function is the function ten to the power of. It is called (sometimes) the antilog

Ex:
Question What is the antilog of 3.5678?
Answer The antilog of 3.5678 is 10^(3.5678) = 3696.579068
Verification: log(3696.57908) =3.5678

Hope it helps.

### How to use the Logerithmic function on this calculator

Hi,

Logarithms in base 10 :Common logarithms
1. The calculator has a key labeled [LOG]. It allows you to calculate the common logarithms (logarithms in base 10).
2. To calculate the common logarithm of a (positive) number you type in the number, press the [LOG] key .
3. Ex: 15.32 [LOG][=] gives 1.1852558765
Logarithms in base e : Natural logarithms
1. The calculator has a key labeled [LN]. It allows you to calculate the natural logarithms of positive numbers.
2. Ex: natural log of 15.32 is entered as
3. 15.32 [LN] gives 2.729159164
Hope it helps.
Don't forget to rate the solution and don't be stingy: 4 thumbs up won't leave you any the poorer.

### Random based logarithms

to do logarithms with other bases, use change-of-base. let's say you want to do log base 5 of 25. for clarity i'll write this as log(5) 25. you would have to do log(10) 25 / log(10) 5 to get 2. key sequence: [LOG], 2, 5, ), / (divide), [LOG], 5, )
