10.5 Base e and Natural Logarithms 10.5 Notes # ___

2
History The number e is a famous irrational number, and is one of the most important numbers in mathematics. The first few digits are It is often called Euler's number after Leonhard Euler. e is the base of the natural logarithms (invented by John Napier).

3
Calculating The value of (1 + 1/n) n approaches e as n gets bigger and bigger: n (1 + 1/n) n , , ,

4
Vocabulary natural base: the number e, which is found using It is the base rate of growth shared by all continually growing processes natural base exponential function: an exponential function with base e

5
Ex 1 Use a calculator to estimate to four decimal places. Ex 2

6
Vocabulary natural logarithm: a logarithm with base e The natural log gives you the time needed to reach a certain level of growth. natural logarithmic function: the inverse of the natural base exponential function
