Returns the base-10 logarithm of a given number.
If the x is negative, it returns NaN.
If the x is 0, it returns -Infinity.

Example:

In the example below, Math.log10() method is used to calculate the base-10 logarithm of a given number.

var txt;

txt = "Math.log10(1) = " + Math.log10(1) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.log10(10) = " + Math.log10(10) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.log10(50) = " + Math.log10(50) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.log10(0) = " + Math.log10(0) + "<br>";
txt = txt + "Math.log10(-1) = " + Math.log10(-1) + "<br>";

The output (value of txt) after running above script will be:

Math.log10(1) = 0
Math.log10(10) = 1
Math.log10(50) = 1.6989700043360187
Math.log10(0) = -Infinity
Math.log10(-1) = NaN
