Exponentials come as solutions of this differential equation: dx/dt=c*x where c is a constant and x and t variables. The solution is of the form: x(t)=e^(c*t) A great number of measurements and observations we make can be approximated by this equation. Once the solution is exponential it is logical to take the log since the numbers become large fast ...
