Which seems more interesting to you, exponential functions or logarithmic functions? You already know they are related through the mathematical concept of inverses, but where do they appear in the world around us?
The initial post of your discovery should be at least 250–500 words in length. Use current APA format to cite your sources (e.g., from library books, textbooks, and the Web). Your post must contain some of your own thoughts and reactions, in addition to any citations you make.
Remember that Wikipedia is not an academically reliable source and should not be used or referenced in the post. However, it is a good place to get some potential key terms, names of people associated with logarithms, etc.
In this short response and discussion, you will dive deeper into the applications of logarithmic functions to uncover your curiosity. Complete the following:
Research applications of logarithmic functions as mathematical models. Some ideas include but are not limited to: pH (acidity of solutions), intensity of sound (decibels), brightness of stars, human memory, progress over time in a sport, and profit over time.
Choose an area of interest from above or provide one of your own, and explain how logarithmic functions are used.
Provide at least one example.
