Description

The java.lang.Math.log10(double a) returns the base 10 logarithm of a double value. Special cases:

  • If the argument is NaN or less than zero, then the result is NaN.
  • If the argument is positive infinity, then the result is positive infinity.
  • If the argument is positive zero or negative zero, then the result is negative infinity.
  • If the argument is equal to 10n for integer n, then the result is n.

Declaration

Following is the declaration for java.lang.Math.log10() method

public static double log10(double a)

Parameters

  • a -- a value

Return Value

This method returns the base 10 logarithm of a.

Exception

  • NA

Example

The following example shows the usage of lang.Math.log10() method.

package com.tutorialspoint;

import java.lang.*;

public class MathDemo {

   public static void main(String[] args) {

      // get two double numbers
      double x = 60984.1;
      double y = 1000;

      // get the base 10 logarithm for x
      System.out.println("Math.log10(" + x + ")=" + Math.log10(x));

      // get the base 10 logarithm for y
      System.out.println("Math.log10(" + y + ")=" + Math.log10(y));


   }
}

Let us compile and run the above program, this will produce the following result:

Math.log10(60984.1)=4.78521661890635
Math.log10(1000)=3.0
