A mathematical scale used for examining the rate of change. The units are based on the power of ten, i.e. 0.1, 1, 10, 100, 1,000, etc. It is useful when the rates under study vary considerably.

Changes graph scale from arithmetic to a logarithmic scale.

a scale based on the fact that powers or exponents of base numbers are added when multiplying and subtracted when dividing; math functions that range over a broad scale of magnitudes are usually graphed with a logarithmic axis

Measurement scale based on logarithms. Values increase on this scale exponentially.

Graph scale in which some divisions represent powers of 10 (100,101,102,103, etc.).

scale on which actual distances from the origin are proportional to the logarithms of the corresponding scale numbers

Scale in which each increase of a unit involves an increase or reduction by ten times.

A method of displaying data (in powers of ten) to yield maximum range while keeping resolution at the low end of the scale.

A scale in which each unit increment represents a tenfold increase or decrease such as a pH scale.

A logarithmic scale is a scale of measurement that uses the logarithm of a physical quantity instead of the quantity itself.
