MongoDB provides different types of arithmetic expression operators that are used in the aggregation pipeline stages and $log10 operator is one of them. This operator is used to find the log base 10 of the specified number and returns the result as a double.

Syntax: 

{ $log10: <number> }

Here, the number is a valid expression until it resolves to a non-negative number. 

  • If the entered value is null, then this operator will return null.
  • If the entered value is NaN, then this operator will return NaN.
  • If the entered value is a missing field, then this operator will return null.

Examples:

In the following examples, we are working with:

Database: GeeksforGeeks

Collection: example

Document: two documents that contain the details of the shapes in the form of field-value pairs.

Using $log10 operator:

In this example, we are going to find the log base 10 of the value of the side field in the square document.

db.example.aggregate([{$match:{name: "Square"}},
... {$project: {logbas10: {$log10: "$side"}}}])

Using $log10 operator in the embedded document: 

In this example, we are going to find the log base 10 of the value of the measurement.height field in the rectangle document. 

db.example.aggregate([{$match:{name: "Rectangle"}},
... {$project: {logbase10: {$log10: "$measurement.height"}}}])
