Question 4723: Question on :LOGARITHMS
Logarithms are used in algebra by plotting graphs, finding exponent values etc.., but Logarithms are also used in daily aplliances for e.g. Ph scale to determine if something is acidic or alkaline. My question is, "what other uses are there for Logarithms that can be used in daily life?"
Thank you for your time.

You can put this solution on YOUR website! the wind and Richter (earthquake) scales are logarithmic, not linear, so an earthquake of size 5 is 10 times more powerful than one of size 4.
