## CBSE Notes Class 11 Maths Logarithm

Candidates who are pursuing in CBSE Class 11 Maths are advised to revise the notes from this post. With the help of Notes, candidates can plan their Strategy for particular weaker section of the subject and study hard. So, go ahead and check the Important Notes for CBSE Class 11 Maths Logarithm from this article.

If a is a positive real number other than 1 and a^{x} = m, then x is called the logarithm of m to the base a, written as log_{a} m. In log_{a} m, m should be always positive.

(i) If m < 0, then log_{a} m will be imaginary and if m = 0, then log_{a} m will be meaningless.

(ii) log_{a} m exists only, if m, a > 0 and a ≠ 1.

**Types of Logarithms**

**1. Natural or Napier Logarithms**

The logarithms with base ‘e’ (e = 2.718) are called natural logarithms.

e.g., log_{e} x, log_{e} 25 etc.

**2. Common or Brigg’s Logarithms**

The logarithm with base ’10’ are called common logarithm.

e.g., log_{10} x, log_{10} 75 etc.

Note In a logarithmic expression when the base is not mentioned, it is taken as 10.

**Characteristic and Mantissa of a Logarithm**

The logarithm of positive real number ‘n’ consists of two parts.

1. The integral part is known as the characteristic. It is always an integer positive, negative or zero.

2. The decimal part is called as the mantissa. The mantissa is never negative and is always less than one.

To Find the Characteristic

**Case I.** When the number is greater than 1.

The characteristic is one less than the number of digits in the left of decimal point in the given number.

e.g., 6.125 characteristic is O.

61.321 characteristic is 1.

725.132 characteristic is 2.

**Case II.** When the number is less than 1.

The characteristic is one more than the number of zero, between the decimal point and the fu-st significant digits of the number and it is negative.

e.g.. 0.7. characteristic is 1.

0.06712 characteristic ia 2.

0.00031 characteristic is 4.

**Note** In place of -1 or -2 etc.. we use 1 tone bar) and 2 (two bar) etc.

**Properties of Logarithm**

I. Characteristic of the logarithm of any number greater than I will be less than number of digits in the ‘integral part of the number’.

2. Characteristic of the logarithm of a number less than one negative and is one more than the number of zeros to the right of the decimal point in the number.

3. Since. a negative number can never be expressed as the power of 10, mantissa should always be kept positive. Hence, whenever characteristic ig negative, minus sign is placed above the characteristic and not to i. to show that the mantissa is always positive.

4. Mantissa of the logarithm of the number having same digits in the same order will be the same, irrespective of the position of the decimal point.

**Anti-Logarithm**

The positive number a is called the anti-logarithm of a number 6, if a Is anti-logarithm of b. then we write a = antilog b.

So, a = antilog b ⇔ log a = b

**Important Results on Logarithm**

**Logarithmic Inequalities**

(i) Let a is a real number such that a > 0, ≠ 1, then

(ii) Let a is a real number, then

(iii) Let a is a real number such that a > 0, ≠ 1, then (a)
