Aim: Differentiating Natural Log Function Course: Calculus Exponential Equation y = b x Inverse Exponential Function y = log b x Logarithmic Equation Inverse of Exponential Equation x = b y Exponential example y = 2 x y = log 2 x Logarithmic example Inverse of Exponential example x = 2 y log b x = y if and only if b y = x The expression log b x is read as the “log base b of x”. The function f(x) = log b x is the logarithmic function with base b. Logarithm = Exponent y = b x “x is the logarithm of y” y = log b x “y is the logarithm of x

Aim: Differentiating Natural Log Function Course: Calculus Natural Logarithmic Function f(x) = log e x = ln x, x > 0 1. ln 1 = 0 2. ln e = 1 3. ln e x = x because e 0 = 1 because e 1 = e because e x = e x The logarithmic function with base e is called the natural log function. inverse property 5. If ln x = ln y, then x = y

4
Aim: Differentiating Natural Log Function Course: Calculus Properties of Natural Log 1.The domain is (0, ) and the range is (- , ). 2.The function is continuous, increasing, and one-to-one. 3.The graph is concave down. If a and b are positive numbers and n is rational, then the following are true ln(1) = 0 ln(ab) = ln a + ln b ln(a n ) = n ln a ln (a/b) = ln a – ln b
