32 :: M. of log 79943726 = .9027843

Hence, log 7994-3726 = 3.9027843. 28. Having given the logarithm of a number to find the number.

After the explanations of Art. 26, the method of working the following examples will be easily understood :

Ex. 1. Find the number whose logarithm is 1.9030173. Taking from the tables the mantissæ next above and below, we have

•9030194 = M. of log 79987
•9030140 = M. of log 79986 .. ............(1).

54 = D. Again,-9030173 = M. of log N..................... Hence, subtracting (1) from (7)

33 = d, the difference between the logarithms of the required number and the next lower.

Now * = •61, the difference between the next lower number and the required number. Hence •9030173 = M. of log 79986.61 ;

... 7.9030173 = log •7998661 ; .. •7998661 is the number required. Ex. 2.* Find the value of (1.023)3 + (500123)*

(1.32756)* We have— log N = 3 log 1.023 + 1 log •00123 – 4 log 1.32756. Now, 3 log 1.023 = 3 x .0098756 = .0276268 1 log •00123 = (3.0899051)

= 1 (4 + 1.0899051) = 1.2724763

* The logarithms used in this example are taken from the tables.

:: adding, 3 log. 1.023 + 1 log .00123 = 1:3001031 Again, M. of log 13275 = .1230345

and diff. for •6 = 196
.:. M. of log 13275:6 = '1230541

... 4 log 1.32756 = 4 x •1230541 = 4922164 Then, subtracting, log N

= 2.5078867 Hence we have, -5078867 = M. of log N,

and •5078828 = M. of log 32202;

.. 39 = d.
also 135 = D,

,39
and 135 = -29.
.:: •5078867 = M. of log 32202-29;

... 2.5078867 = log •03220229.
Hence •03220229 is the number required.

Trigonometrical Tables. 29. We use trigonometrical tables much in the same way as we do tables of ordinary logarithms of numbers.

Tables have been formed of natural sines, cosines, &c., and also of logarithmic sines, cosinės, &c. It is with the latter only we shall now deal, though many of our remarks apply equally to the former.

As the values of the natural sines and cosines of all angles between 0° and 90° are (Art. 11) less than unity, it follows (Art. 21) that their logarithms are negative. To avoid, however, printing them in a negative form, and for other reasons, it is usual to add 10 to their real value, and hence in using them we must allow for this. The same thing is also done in the case of logarithmic tangents, cotangents, secants, and cosecants.

We generally express the true logarithmic sine by log sin, and the tabular logarithmic sine by L sin. Hence, we have, log sin A = L sin A - 10,

log cos A = L cos A - 10, &c. It must be remembered in using the tables that, although (Art. 11) the sine, secant, and tangent of an angle increase as the angle increases from 0° to 90°, yet the cosine, cosecant, and cotangent diminish as the angle increases.

Hence, when any angle is not exactly contained in the tables, we must add the difference in the case of a sine, secant, or tangent; but subtract it in the case of a cosine, cosecant, or cotangent.

And, conversely, when the given logarithm is not contained exactly in the tables, we must in the case of the sine, secant, or tangent take out the next lower tabular logarithm as corresponding to the angle next lower; but in the case of a cosine, cosecant, or cotangent, we must take out the next higher tabular logarithm as corresponding to the angle next lower in the tables.

We shall assume that small differences in the angles are proportional to the corresponding differences of the logarithmic trigonometrical ratios

Ex. 1. Find L sin 56° 28' 24".
Referring to tables, we have-
L sin 56° 28'

= 9.9209393 Tab. diff. for 60" or D = 836 ... diff. for 24" or d = 24 : L sin 56° 28' 24"

= 9.9209727 Ex. 2. Find L cos 29° 31' 28". Now L cos 29° 31'

= 9.9396253 Tab. diff. for 60” or D = - 716 ... diff. for 28" = - 20 716 = - 334

TO X 836

334

.. Lcos 29° 31' 28"

= 9.9395919 Ex. 3. Find the angle A, when I tan A = 9.8658585

We have 9.8658585 = L tan A.
Next lower, 9.8657702 = L tan 36° 17',

883 = difference or d,
Also, 2648 = tab. diff. for 60" = D,

8 x 60" = 20". Hence, 9.8658585 = L tan 36° 17' 20".

And

And Ý x 60" = 2648

x 60" =

883

Ex. 4. Find the angle A, when L cot A = 10·0397936.

We have, 10.0397936 = L cot A,
Next higher, 10.0399770 = L cot 42° 22',

1834 = difference or d,
Also, 2537 = tab. diff. for 60” or D,

no 1834 x 60" = 43". And 6 x 60" = 2537 *

Hence, 10-0397936 = L cot 42° 22' 43".
