A logarithmic system which reveals the number of multiplying factors when a number is expressed as multiplying factors on the basis of $10$, is called common logarithm.
A British Mathematician, Henry Briggs studied the system of Neper’s logarithm (Natural Logarithm) comprehensively but interested to use
as base instead of Napier’s constant in logarithmic system. Thus, the system of common logarithm was introduced and it become most useful than Natural Logarithm. Hence, Common logarithm is called as Brigg’s logarithm or Briggsian logarithm.
is the minimum number that is used in decimal system in denominator of a fraction. So, it is called as decimal logarithm. The number
represents a Decade, therefore it is also called as Decadic logarithm.
In common logarithms,
is used as base of logarithm. It is neither equal to
nor belongs to negative real numbers. However, it belongs to positive real numbers. It can be written in mathematical form as follows.
These conditions made number
is an eligible element to use it as base for common logarithms.
The system of common logarithm can be written as a mathematical form expression by using the concept of algebra. Assume,
Assume, the number
and algebraic variable
both are involved in exponential form relation by working
as base and
as power. Assume, the value of
to the power
is equal to another algebraic variable
. The relation between them can be written in mathematical form as given here.
The logarithm of
as per definition of the logarithmic system. It is written as given here.
Common logarithmic system is a commonly used logarithmic system in mathematics. So, logarithm of
is simply written as logarithm of
The mathematical relation between exponential form expression and common logarithmic system is expressed as given here.
You have to understand that the logarithmic system is a common logarithmic system if logarithmic is displayed either with or without base
