How To Put Log Base In Calculator – Easy Guide

This tool helps you easily calculate logarithms with any base.

How to Use the Logarithm Calculator

To use this calculator, input both the base and the value for which you want to calculate the logarithm.

  1. Enter the base in the first input field. This should be a positive number greater than zero.
  2. Enter the value in the second input field. This should also be a positive number greater than zero.
  3. Click the Calculate button to compute the logarithm of the value to the specified base.
  4. The result will be displayed in the Result field.

How the Calculator Works

This calculator uses the mathematical property of logarithms: logbase(value) = log(value) / log(base), where log represents the natural logarithm (base e).

  • When you input the base and value, the calculator computes their natural logs using JavaScript’s Math.log() function.
  • It then divides the natural log of the value by the natural log of the base to get the result.


  • Both the base and the value must be positive numbers greater than zero.
  • If any of the inputs are non-numerical or less than or equal to zero, the calculator will not work correctly and will show an alert.
  • Results may be imprecise for very large or very small numbers due to the limitations of JavaScript’s floating-point arithmetic.
