The Google Sheets LN function returns the natural logarithm of a given number. And the natural logarithms are based on the constant e (the value is equal to 2.718281828…).
The purpose of this function is to get the natural logarithm of a number in google sheets. And its returned value is the natural logarithm.
The LN function is a build-in function in Google Sheets and it is categorized as a MATH function.
The syntax of the LN function is as below:
= LN (number)
Where the LN function arguments is:
- number – This is a required argument. The number that you want the logarithm. And the number must be a positive real number.
- If either the supplied number argument is negative or zero, the LN function will return #NUM! Error.
- If the number argument is non-numeric, the LN function will return #VALUE! Error.
- LN is the inverse of the Exp function.
Google Sheets LN Function Examples
The below examples will show you how to use google sheets LN Function to calculate the natural logarithm of a given number.
1# to get the natural logarithm of 14, enter the following formula in Cell B1.
= LN (14)
2# to get the natural logarithm of the value of the constant e (2.71828), enter the following formula in Cell B2.
= LN (2.71828)
3# to get the natural logarithm of e raised to the power 2, enter the following formula in Cell B2.
= LN (EXP(2))
